Edward Burtynsky is a Canadian photographer and filmmaker whose work focuses on nature as transformed through industry.

In collaboration with Nicholas de Pencier and Jennifer Baichwal, Burtynsky has created a multidisciplinary exploration of the human impact on the Earth, called The Anthropocene Project. The project includes photography, film, and virtual reality, all based on scientific research about the human influence on the planet.

His book of photographs, Anthropocene has just been released by Steidl Books, along with a trailer of the documentary film which will premier at TIFF 2018.

The book explores topics including extinction, technofossils, and terraforming, and includes specially commissioned poems by Margaret Atwood.
