The Photographs of Edward Burtynsky

Something I have been meaning to do for a while is add Edward Burtynsky to my list of Highly Admired Art, Music and Photography.

His incredible photographs of shipbreaking in Chittagong, Bangladesh have been haunting favorites of mine from the first I saw them. (I have paid homage to his photos in one of my paintings)

His more recent work in China is every bit as intense and beautiful as his work with shipyards, quarries and heavy metal pollution from mine tailings.

Make a cup of tea, and sit and browse his work for a while.
