Humankind reached an unprecedented moment in planetary history. Humans now affect the Earth and its processes more than all other natural forces combined. The "Anthropocene Project" is a multidisciplinary body of work combining fine art photography, film, virtual reality, augmented reality, and scientific research to investigate human influence on the state, dynamic, and future of the Earth.

Galerie Springer Berlin is showing a high-quality selection of new photographs from the "Anthropocene Project".

The entire body of work is currently being shown simultaneously at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada. The documentary film "The Anthropocene: The Human Epoch" by Jennifer Baichwal, Nicholas de Pencier and Edward Burtynsky will soon be shown in cinemas.

The book "The Anthropocene" has just been published by Steidl in Göttingen.

Edward Burtynsky is known as one of Canada‘s most respected photographers. His remarkable photographic depictions of global industrial landscapes are included in the collections of over fifty major museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in California.

Burtynsky was born in 1955 of Ukrainian heritage in St. Catharines, Ontario. He received his BAA in Photography/Media Studies from Ryerson University in 1982. He links his early exposure to the sites and images of the General Motors plant in his hometown to the development of his photographic work. His imagery explores the intricate link between industry and nature, combining the raw elements of mining, quarrying, manufacturing, shipping, oil production and recycling into eloquent, highly expressive visions that find beauty and humanity in the most unlikely of places. In 1985, Burtynsky also founded Toronto Image Works, a darkroom rental facility, custom photo laboratory, digital imaging and new media computertraining centre catering to all levels of Toronto‘s art community.
