Edward Burtynsky – Cerro Prieto Geothermal Power Station Baja, Mexico, 2012

Capture in the Community

Sponsored in part by Pattison Outdoor Advertising
1 of 5 billboards with new works from Edward Burtynsky’s Water

The project takes us over gouged landscapes, fractal patterned delta regions, ominously coloured biomorphic shapes, rigid and rectilinear stepwells, massive circular pivot irrigation plots, aquaculture and social, cultural and ritual gatherings. Water is intermittently introduced as a victim, a partner, a protagonist, a lure, a source, an end, a threat and a pleasure. Water is also often completely absent from the pictures. Burtynsky instead focuses on the visual and physical effects of the lack of water, giving its absence an even more powerful presence.
