Edward Burtynsky
Born in 1955 in St. Catharines, Ontario, Burtynsky is a graduate of Ryerson University and Niagara College. He links his early exposure to the sites and images of the General Motors plant in his hometown to the development of his photographic work. His imagery explores the intricate link between industry and nature, combining the raw elements of mining, quarrying, manufacturing, shipping, oil production and recycling into eloquent, highly expressive visions that find beauty and humanity in the most unlikely of places. He is one of Canada's most respected contemporary photographers whose work supporting a sustainable global village has earned him worldwide acclaim. His remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes are included in the collections of many major museums around the world. In 2006 he was awarded the title of Officer of the Order of Canada.
