Edward Burtynsky, in African Studies, reflects on landscapes undergoing rapid industrial and manufacturing expansion. His images, which focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, depict environments shaped by resource extraction processes, ranging from the salt pans of Senegal to the 'residual landscapes' of mechanized extraction. Images of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam are part of an ongoing investigation into the global theme of water and its environmental and geopolitical implications.
A book of the same name will be published by Steidl.
