Photographer Edward Burtynsky's work is both disarming and beautiful. Currently showing his latest series, Quarries at Flowers East Gallery in London, his large format images of shifting graphic landscapes and miniscule men moving earth, cutting through rocks and stopping rivers is surreal and frightening. In his artist statement, he describes the 'attraction and repulsion, seduction and fear', in his images, which he feels captures the crisis of our modern times. These are pictures we love to look at, but also afraid to because it's just too real. ed_01.jpg
