And it grabbed me immediately! His work is at the least inspiring to work on an industrial ecology. The most intrigueing is the fact that his photographs are both beautiful (and even the things that he photographs on itself) and shocking at the same time. He makes it look as if we treat the earth as if it's just LEGO (well that's the feeling I get). This means both good and bad things, since the scale doesn't imply if it's sustainable or not (surprise, surprise here's industrial ecology)
The best thing about it all is the fact that Burtynsky is on a mission to make people aware of this. So here I let you know about his work; go see his TED talk, check out his website and let me know if you find out about a theatre showing his movie in the Netherlands (check out the trailer!).
