Edward Burtynsky

Edward Burtynsky managed to organize and create a very comprehensive message with his collection of images about oil.  It was obvious he was very decisive and his ideas were well thought out because the result is a steadfast and to the point type of message.  He started off with images of extraction and refinement to show how oil is drawn from the Earth and processed for our use.  Edward then captured how we use oil with images of highways and suburban areas.  The last part of his collection was the destruction and consequence of our use that included large scale images of recycling fields and landfills where old oil machinery gets dumped.  I enjoyed the last part the most because his message became clear and hard hitting.
