Book Description

June 24 2009
Over a twenty-five year career exploring the landscape as transformed by industry, the celebrated Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky has accumulated a body of work on large scale quarries around the world. Including Canada, Italy, China, Spain, Portugal, India and America these thought provoking studies of sites that are created as we dig into the earth for material in order to build our cities, urge us to consider how we as viewers are simultaneously attracted yet repulsed by these landscapes - somewhere a building is created while a landscape is destroyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Photographer Nov. 4 2007
By Lawrence L. Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Burtynsky shoots stunning pictures. There are many great photographers (and photography books) out there but his pictures are full of color and precision and the subject matter is a wonder to behold.

It is a big big book. The compositions are powerful, the colors, and the details. You are realy in there, in the depth, the immensity of the quarries. For those who know quarries, it is a real travel. Amazing.
