Paul Roth
Mapping the Unknown: The Visionary Landscapes of Edward Burtynsky

Thursday, November 27, 2014, 12pm
RIC Research Centre
122 Bond Street, Second Floor, RIC-241

Born in St. Catherines, Ontario in 1955, Edward Burtynsky is one of the world’s best known and most respected photographers. His images of little known industrial and manufacturing sites, landscapes altered by habitation, and waste products from consumption reveal the world we live in as a post-industrial sublime, at once beautiful and terrifying, in vivid colors and at startling scale. Join Ryerson Image Centre Director Paul Roth, curator of the exhibition Edward Burtynsky: Oil, as he discusses Burtynsky’s debt to his education at Ryerson, his works in the RIC collection, and his place in art and photography history.
