Manufactured Landscapes

... gorgeous ... mesmerizing ... important, disquieting ... absorbing, if unsettling ...

Make time to see this film. (Don't forget about Iraq in Fragments.)

Edward Burtynsky is internationally acclaimed for his large-scale photographs of nature transformed by industry. Manufactured Landscapes – a stunning documentary by award winning director Jennifer Baichwal – follows Burtynsky to China, as he captures the effects of the country’s massive industrial revolution. This remarkable film leads us to meditate on human endeavour and its impact on the planet.

Wired offers photographs, along with an interview with the photographer Ed Burtynsky:

"I started to think: where is all this natural material going, where does it get formed into the products that we buy?"
