    About The Work

    For this series, Burtynsky travelled to Gujarat, India, to the region of Little Ran of Kutch. In an intense 10-day helicopter shoot, images were captured of an age-old process of salt extraction from the floodplains of the Arabian Sea.
    Environmental and climate changes, poor governmental support, and diminishing market values threaten the 400 year-old tradition that has seen over 10 million lbs. of salt each year.
    Rather than seeing the human world and natural world as separate, these images remind the viewer of the constant dialogue between humans and their environments. It is here that Burtynsky captures the mark of human development on the earth and its embedded political, social, and economic consequences.
