A tweet a day: Edward Burtynsky


The marvel of Edward Burtynsky. He works off the theme of creating landscapes of what we humans have created on our planet. Which generally seems to be destruction and infiltration of our land. He never comments on what his message is of the images he captures. I can see the beauty in them but i feel he is trying to make people aware of what is going on over fences and in blackened holes. It looks like a black hole from space it is actually a nickel mining pit from Western Australia. I find the images empowering in surreal way. The lighting on the image is perfect the direction in which the shafts of light capture the side. Looking at it im wondering is there some kind of artificial light source on the stairs
