Edward Burtynsky's "Nature Transformed" Large-Format Photographs At Von Lintel Gallery - April 25 To June 7, 2015
Edward Burtynsky's Nature Transformed at Von Lintel Gallery (2685 S. La Cienega Blvd., Los Angeles) from April 25 to June 7, 2015. There will be an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 25. This is Burtynsky's first solo show with the gallery. The artist is known for his look at how landscapes are reshaped via human interference. These large-scale photographs are from far above and turn these images of rice terraces and irrigation plots into colorful images that seem almost out of science fiction. They are beautiful, staggering and sometimes terrifying pieces in their implication.
Burtynsky's work is featured in the collections of over 60 major museums. His fifth book, Burtynsky-Water, came out in 2013 along with a documentary Watermark. We posted o this last year. Any opportunity to see his work in person should be seized.
