End of Oil photography by Edward Burtynsky

Took a closer look at the end of the oil era as we know it, photographed beautifully by Edward Burtynsky.

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 Bibliotèque Nationale in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

In his latest exhibition ‘Oil’, he shows us the decay of our world, living as a junky, addicted to oil. These pictures are both beautiful and scary. Burtynsky shows us all the aspects of what our search for oil causes.
