Photographs by Edward Burtynsky - black things






Photographs by Edward Burtynsky.

1. Nickel Tailings No.1 (Ontario) from the Tailings series.
2. Sip Breaking #23 (Bangladesh) from the Ships series.
3. Oxford Tire Pile #9b (California) from the Oil and Urban Mines series.
4. Oxford Tire Pile #4 (California) from the Oil and Urban Mines series.
5. Tanggu Port (Tianjin) from the China -Coal and Steel series.

Post Halloween and I still have a fairly large collection of black images I wanted to share. These ones are all by Photographer Edward Burtynsky (his photos aren't always black). Whenever I waiver in my consumer or energy use restraint I should look at his website and remind myself of what is involved, before and after, in our culture of mass consumption. Makes me want to get out in the garden and grow more seeds.

Edward Burtynsky is one of my all-time favourite photographers. I love his work! Thanks for the link. I did not know about this site.

Those are AMAZING images...the man in front of the ship is so evocative!

-Jennifer- I'd bookmarked the link but then forgot, so glad I found it again to share.

-Scott- Indeed, we thought he looked like a 1920's or 30's Dandy.
