Howard Greenberg Gallery presents a retrospective that spans Burtynsky’s career. These images explore the complex relationship between industry and nature, constructed brilliance and unspoiled earth, and represent Burtynsky’s ongoing examination of humanity’s growing ecological footprint. Edward Burtynsky has consistently pushed the boundaries of contemporary photography and social awareness. His large-format color photographs of global industrial landscapes and humanity’s expanding footprint have the capacity to both unsettle and to inspire. His works are included in over fifty major museum collections around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Tate Modern in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the National Gallery in Washington D.C., The Library of Congress in Washington D.C., the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid.
