Need to remember to watch: MANUFACTURED LANDSCAPES.
It is a feature length documentary on the world
and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky. Burtynsky makes
large-scale photographs of ‘manufactured landscapes’ – quarries,
recycling yards, factories, mines, dams. He photographs civilization’s
materials and debris, but in a way people describe as “stunning” or
“beautiful,” and so raises all kinds of questions about ethics and
aesthetics without trying to easily answer them.
