The Amended Landscape: Edward Burtynsky, Marco Francisco, Eve Gane, Shavon Madden and Moira Ness.
The Latcham Gallery is thrilled to present The Amended Landscape, an exhibition of photographic works by Edward Burtynsky, Eve Gane, Marco Francisco, Shavon Madden and Moira Ness.
Edward Burtynsky is one of Canada's most respected photographers whose works can be found in the collections of over sixty major museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Since the 1980s he has been creating epic photographs and more recently feature films, that reflect our human imprint upon the biosphere on which we depend. The scale and beauty of Burtynsky's images depicting the environmental effects humanity has upon the landscape serve to disrupt the conventional reading of such destruction. Subversively pulling us into an intimacy with his subject, the work forces us to confront the reality of our impact upon the planet.
The Latcham Gallery has also included the lens-based work of four emerging artists Marco Francisco, Eve Gane, Shavon Madden and Moira Ness who, through a variety of methods and approaches, seek to mirror the many ways we manipulate, augment, and otherwise leave our mark upon the landscape ... more
