Edward Burtynsky’s excellent quarry pictures confuse the brain and take several closer looks to figure out if they are real or not. The contrast between the shaded pics of cut stone with the tinker toy looking JCBs perfect for twisting your brain. His extensive work showcases that man’s desire to permanently alter the earth on a grand scale for personal gain is insatiable. Despite taking photos of undoubtedly controversial subject matter he always lets the images do the talking and his accompanying text is intentionally factual and emotion free.
I intended to post more of his work but will have to split into multiple posts do them justice.
