Edward Burtynsky

Quick art posting —

I’ve been very fascinated with the work of Edward Burtynsky lately. He takes breathtaking photographs of your not-so-typical landscapes and scenery such as marble quarries, steel factories, tailings and homesteads. He means to bring social awareness with his art, and at the same time, a subtle beauty.

He is fantastic at capturing elegance in such rough and raw compositions. I highly recommend checking out his work.
