One of the world's leading nature photographers, Burtynsky has founded a darkroom rental facility in Toronto in mid-1980s. He then worked on a number of ambitious projects that were displayed in exhibitions including "Water" at the New Orleans Museum of Art, "Oil" at Washington's Corcoran Gallery of Art and "Manufactured Landscapes" at the National Gallery of Canada. A lecturer on photographic art, Burtynsky has won numerous distinctions, including the Order of Canada and the Rogers Best Canadian Film Award."While trying to accommodate the growing needs of an expanding, and very thirsty civilization, we are reshaping the earth in colossal ways," Burtynsky writes in his artist statement for the project. "In this new and powerful role over the planet, we are also capable of engineering our own demise. We have to learn to think more long-term about the consequences of what we are doing, while we are doing it. My hope is that these pictures will stimulate a process of thinking about something essential to our survival; something we often take for granted - until it's gone."
