About The Work

The mine series illustrates Burtynsky’s interest in the mark of human development on the earth and its embedded political, social and economic consequences.

The artist quotes, “What this civilization leaves in the wake of its progress may be the opened and emptied earth, but in performing these incursions we also participate in the unwitting creation of gigantic monuments to our way of life”.

"#10 Highland Valley" displays the artist’s characteristic focus on the formal qualities of his image: the chiselled earth of this Canadian quarry forms a dizzying linear spectacle, while the enormity of the landscape shrinks the transport vehicles and buildings scattered throughout the image.
