Issue 117 Features:
Canadian photographer, Edward Burtynsky, renowned for his large-scale photographs of industrial landscapes and most recently, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, talks with BC about his extensive bodies of work in which he attempts to "…raise our consciousness about how we're collectively changing the landscape."
