Just saw Burtynsky in Manufactured Landscapes, a documentary film on the photographer and his ongoing work dealing with man's effect on the landscape of the industrialized world. After the Mao dynasty the agrarian/urban landscape in China was 90%/10%, that figure is now changed completely to 30%/70% urban. The imagery that he deals with is on a massive scale: industrialization, overpopulation, pollution, human rights issues, and the irreversible ecological effects that man forces on the planet make for a queezy documentary. However, Burtynsky's strong view on not vocalizing sides, rather letting the imagery speak is what makes him as an artist and documentarian so effective.
