Edward Burtynsky:?Oil follows Canadian artist Edward Burtynsky’s decade-long photographic exploration of the subject of oil. From 1997 to the present, Burtynsky has travelled the world to chronicle the production, distribution and consumption of this critical fuel.

Edward Burtynsky:?Oil represents the “life cycle” of the energy source that has shaped the modern world.

Rooted in the history of landscape painting, the 55 works in this exhibition present a new, modern landscape, altered by manufacturing, industry and human intervention.

The exhibit runs to Jan. 2 at the Art Gallery of Alberta.
