Edward Burtynsky: African Studies
On 4 November, Galerie Springer Berlin will open the solo exhibition "African Studies" by Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. For decades, his concern for the environment has been the driving force behind his artistic work. In stunningly beautiful images, he shows us the serious marks that industry leaves on the earth. At the same time, his images often document alarming ecological disasters.
The exhibition includes work from Ethiopia, Kenya, Namibia, Senegal and South Africa. The photographs show bird's eye views of the mining of sulphur, coal, iron, diamonds and salt. Breathtaking images from Namibia reveal the beauty of the country's unspoilt nature.
On view through 2 March 2024.
Galerie Springer, Fasanenstr. 13, 10623 Berlin
Opening hours: Tue-Fri 12-18h, Sat 12-15h
