Edward Burtynsky is a Canadian photographer, renowned for his photographic industrial scenes from around the world. Burtynsky’s photographs – from factories in China to mines in Canada – display what Burtynsky calls “the beauty in the beast.” Edward Burtynsky: The Industrial Sublime is organized by the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Weber State University, and the University of Wyoming Art Museum.
