Burtynsky's recent photographs have been about peak oil, the urbanization of China and rock quarry mining. The photographs are an interesting balance of attraction and repulsion. The colors and tonal ranges and sheer beauty of his work attract a closer look leading to the realization that the scene has been caused by humans "disrupting the landscape in pursuit of progress". This book is a good example of how reproductions can be limiting to fine art. The book feels muted compared to Burtynsky's prints. Half of what attracts me to his work is the precise craftsmanship and fine detail.
I was introduced to this photographer by fellow large format shooter, Tom Paiva, who is understandably inspired by Burtynsky; Tom shoots industrial subjects at night. I have this book and "Burtynsky - China", both of which contributed the still images to the *most excellent* DVD, "Manufactured Landscapes". If you like the book, get the DVD!
