Manufactured Landscapes

Internationally acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of “manufactured landscapes”—quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines and dams—Edward Burtynsky creates beautiful art from civilization’s materials and debris. This film follows him through China, as he shoots the evidence and effects of that country’s massive industrial revolution. Meditate on our impact on the planet and witness both the epicenters of industrial endeavor and the dumping grounds of its waste.
