Burtynsky in the Gulf

The Gulf oil spill has never looked so sublime, as when Edward Burtynsky took a few photographs. An exhibit at the Metivier Gallery in Toronto is opening on September 16th, 2010 of his photos taken this spring flying over the Gulf. Previously, Burtynsky has photographed oil fields around the world, along with his best known works on Shipbreaking. Check out the interview about his trip to the gulf.
