From the publisher: "Since the inception of photography, the landscape has largely been a genre concerned with the contemplation of sublime nature. By the late twentieth century, however, the seismic effects wrought by industry demanded a new vision. For the last twenty years this has been the artistic concern of photographer Edward Burtynsky. Burtynsky characterizes his theme as, 'the landscape changed in the pursuit of progress.' Working with a large-format view camera, Burtynsky has journeyed from the mines of Sudbury to the marble quarries of Italy. And what he found in the aftermath of the extraction of resources, the effluence of industry and the reclamation of materials was the 'residual landscape,' a poetic document embedded with metaphors for architecture, archeology and art."
