Water. Our life is impossible without it, it’s the symbol of life. And at the same time it can be a very scary and powerful force that we learn to fear, be it on sea or in the shape of the weather.
The Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky is exhibiting his work, entitled ‘Water’, at Toronto’s Nicholas Metivier Gallery, starting next week, on September 5th. It’s the result of a project spanning across ten countries and while beautiful, also raises many important questions about humanity’s relationship to water, be it in agriculture or otherwise.
The artist also has his latest documentary movie called ‘Watermark’ on display at the Metivier (trailer linked here). An exhibition worth keeping an eye out for.
