Manufactured Landscapes: Edward Burtynsky - SIPF Film Screenings
Edward Burtynsky is a Canadian photographer renowned for his large-scale colour photographs of landscapes affected by industries such as mines, quarries and refineries.
This documentary by Jennifer Baichwal follows Burtynsky as he photographs in China, from massive manufacturing plants in Guangdong to the Three Gorges Dam on the Yangtze River. The deliberate slowness of the film mimics Burtynsky’s contemplative method of photographing with a large-format camera.
