"We took what we needed from the Earth and this is what we left behind. That is the informational layer of my work, but there is also a political layer and an autobiographical one." – Edward Burtynsky
The Vancouver Art Gallery is pleased to present Edward Burtynsky as the 2014 Heller Lecture. Known as one of Canada’s most respected photographers, his remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes are included in over 50 major museum collections around the world. The artist’s illustrated talk will explore his photographic practice with a focus on Water, his most recent photographic series, and his award-winning documentary Watermark.
Following his lecture, Burtynsky will be joined on stage by the renowned human ecologist William Rees, for a discussion concerning the crucial role of water in global ecological sustainability.
Generously supported by Paul and Edwina Heller in memory of Kitty Heller.
