Edward Burtynsky is known as one of the most respected photographers and filmmakers in Canada. His remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes explore the collective impact we as a species are having on the surface of the planet. As The Anthropocene Project, his new multidisciplinary body of work in collaboration with Nicholas de Pencier and Jennifer Baichwal opens across venues in his home country, Burtynsky returns to London to discuss his art, films and research.
To discuss the dramatic impact that human activity now causes Earth’s ecosystems, Burtynsky is joined by Gaia Vince, award-winning journalist journalist, broadcaster and author specialising in science, the environment and social issues.
Organised in collaboration with The Photographers’ Gallery.
