The piles of tires

...under Urban Mines on Edward Burtynsky's website bother me. In fact, most of the work on his site bothers me. It's meant to. Burtynsky and his work are the subject of a story in today's Globe and Mail, a story I found via Said Like Reeds or Things.

My own environment-oriented photographs will meet the public soon, carrying related contradictions.

Thanks for this, B. Have you seen the recent issue of Descant(Winter 2004, theme: Transfer/Disconnect) that featured Burtynky's work? It provided a tidy throughline from Burtynsky's images to literary musings on nature, childhood, and the city.

No, I haven't seen that issue. Thanks for the heads up, Ariel! I will check it out.
