Press release image


Announcing a new publication -- Edward Burtynsky: Essential Elements Edited and curated by William A. Ewing


UK Edition available as of September 15, 2016
US/Canada Edition available as of November 15, 2016

Edited and curated by William A. Ewing, Edward Burtynsky: Essential Elements provides an overview of Burtynsky’s work across four decades, including both iconic images and many previously unpublished photographs.

Relinquishing the project-based lens through which the photographer’s work has previously been presented, this book presents Burtynsky’s photographs in five free-flowing sections that combine and contrast work from throughout his career. This original approach provides a sense of both his visual language and his exploration of the dilemmas at the heart of our globalized world. Each section is interspersed with selected texts that work in concert with the images, to provide a fuller understanding of Burtynsky’s view of the world.

With an introduction by Ewing and an afterword by Joshua Schuster, Essential Elements provides an entirely new way of seeing Burtynsky’s work for those who are already familiar with it as well as an accessible introduction for those encountering his photographs for the first time.

To celebrate the publication of this new book, there will be two special exhibitions:

Edward Burtynsky: Salt Pans | Essential Elements at Flowers Gallery, Kingsland Road, London from September 16 – October 29, 2016.

The exhibition opening and book launch will take place at Flowers Gallery on
Thursday September 15, 6-8 p.m.


RSVP: info@flowersgallery.com

SALT PANS


Salt Pans is Edward Burtynsky's newest book consisting of 31 photographs that capture the beautiful geometrics of the salt pans in Little Rann of Kutch, Gujarat, India. The book is being published by Steidl and will be released in September 2016..

"The images in this book are not about the battles being fought on the ground. Rather, they examine this ancient method of providing one of the most basic elements of our diet; as primitive industry and as abstract two-dimensional human marks upon the landscape,"
Edward Burtynsky

PRESS RELEASE



Press release image


I am very excited to announce my next project: Anthropocene. The Anthropocene Project will include a feature documentary film, which will be the third in a trilogy that includes multiple award-winning films Manufactured Landscapes and Watermark. The film is again a collaboration between myself, co-director Jennifer Baichwal, and producer / cinematographer Nick de Pencier of Mercury Films. It will be accompanied by a museum show incorporating virtual reality, a photographic exhibition of new work I am producing, and a book. Expected release date is fall of 2017. We will also be launching an online digital conversation around the topic of the Anthropocene including a website that will go live at the end of this month and various social media channels. Please follow @anthropocene on Twitter and Instagram and like us on Facebook at the links below.

The Anthropocene Project follows members of the Anthropocene Working Group (AWG), a number of scientists who are trying to determine whether our impact as a species on the earth mandates a name change from our present geological epoch, Holocene, to Anthropocene (age of man). The project seeks to document the most salient examples of AWG evidence that is being collected all over the world. Some examples include: terraforming of the earth for human needs and its effects (agriculture, mines and extractive industries, dams, sediment perturbation, tunnels, urbanization); extinctions and the proliferation of invasive species; technofossils, such as aluminium, plastics and concrete, and their ubiquity world- and ocean- wide; radionuclides from nuclear fallout, which have global correlate signals; climate change and sea level rise.

We, as the dominant species on earth, working together, have the capacity to change our home for the better. What does it mean to live in the Anthropocene Epoch?.
