A Terrible Beauty: The Seductive Lens of Edward Burtynsky

The UNB Art Centre invites you to immerse yourself in the large format photographs of celebrated Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky.  

The exhibit features 25 of the photographer’s digital chromogenic prints as well as a portfolio of smaller prints entitled Pentimento.

These works, produced between 1985 and 2016, include pieces from each of the artist’s major series.

Since his earliest days, he has pushed the limits of new technology and with his camera takes us to the most inaccessible locations and shows them to us with HD clarity.

Shooting from 800 feet above the earth with a 60-megapixel camera, he chooses a viewpoint that reduces minutiae, flattens objects and focuses on composition, broader patterns and overarching themes of our man-made world.
