Ed Burtynsky brings the big picture to Brooklyn

Posted by:

BurtynskyTED Prize winner Ed Burtynsky is known for his extraordinary large-format photographs, documenting the impact of humans on Earth. His epic slideshow at TED2005 took us through unorthodox landscapes — mountains of tires, rivers of industrial waste — as eerily beautiful as they are disturbing. You can revisit them (at your own pace) at the Brooklyn Museum through January 15th. Or in his book, Manufactured Landscapes, any time you like.
