This is not a book of "beautiful" photographs, but they are moving and artistic, while also being sobering and thought-provoking.

Edward Burtynsky is een Canadese fotograaf die al jaren de wereld rondreist om de gevolgen van de toenemende industrialisatie op de natuurlijke leefomgeving van de Aarde vast te leggen.

- Oude industrie
- Scheepswerven
- Hergebruik
- Handwerk
- Stadsvernieuwing
