Burtynsky's most recent series, Water, is made up of color photographs. The artist is best known for his images of industrial landscapes. These images document the impact of manufacturing and consumption on the world's water supply. Aptly Burtynsky traveled the globe shooting images from 7,000 feet above to show the human footprint not obvious from a closer vantage. His images show Kumbh Mela where thirty million people gather to bathe, Icelandic desertification and gigantic irrigation sites in Texas (among many others).
This exhibition will also host the Singapore debut of the documentary film Watermark which follows Burtynsky shooting images from the Water series. For more information go to www.sundaramtagore.com.
