TED presentation by Ed Burtynsky

To catch a glimpse of how sentence is formed…. Another kind of body of work that is concerned with issues of the human influence and picturing traces of transformation upon the environment… Burtynsky builds a visual sensitivity…. and talks a bit about the question of an ugly subject presented in an aesthetic way…. an interesting paradox to consider.

Pictures: manufactured to get the viewer to think about sustainability and yet are also beautiful.
