Manufactured Landscapes

The Photographs of Edward Burtynsky

  • Lori Pauli; With contributions by Mark Haworth-Booth, Kenneth Baker, and Michael Torosian


“Edward Burtynsky’s striking images serve as wordless indictments of the industrial societies that create his subject matter—the increasingly ravaged earth. . . . Manufactured Landscapes, a career-spanning collection of his work, shows just how deep the rift is between the natural and the artificial.”—Outside

“A book of magnificent work. . . . Burtynsky brings the rigor and grandiosity of architectural photography to his subject matter, an in-depth exploration of those vistas where the human touch—the human will and desire to produce goods—has had an undeniable impact. . . . Burtynsky has photographed these places with care and mesmerizing exactitude, a blend of the objectivity of the Bechers and the lyricism of Elger Esser, but with a decidedly North American palate. Definitely one of the best books of the year.”—Photoeye
