Publisher Note

Published on the occasione of the exhibition: Edward Burtynsky Australian Minescapes. 9 January - 7 February 2009.

The focus of this book is a series of remarkably compelling and incredibly tactile large scale photographs of Australian mine sites taken from the air. From this perspective, through the eye of a master photographer, what are for many scars upon the landscape become extraordinary images of beauty and sensuality. This sumptuous, large format, casebound book also features a series of accessible and insightful essays on Burtynsky's work, on photography and Australian landscape and art.
