Australian Minescapes
Edward Burtynsky’s aerial photographs of Australian mines show an earth carved and cratered from the activities of man. Shown in his photographs are the literal consequences of what it takes to maintain a civilization. The texture, line, and color in the photographs come from the removal of earth’s layers to reveal the raw material that sources the necessities and luxuries that we possess. Burtynsky states, “If the human experience can be considered a manifestation of dreams, and desires, mines can be thought of as the source for the raw material of that experience.” For more of Burtysnsky’s work, click here.
