Manufactured landscapes by Jennifer Baichwall( visu )
19 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and French and held by 1,107 libraries worldwide
Edward Burtynsky has gained international recognition for his photographs of what he calls manufactured landscapes. He argues that we have reached past the point now where we are at the mercy of the environment--our planet now lives and dies at our mercy. This is not meant to be a frightening concept, though many of the images are sobering, in this chilling but ultimately beautiful documentary on what industrialization is doing to man and the world as we know it. Or used to know it. Manufactured Landscapes tells the story of these images, and how Burtynsky came to be so fascinated with the concept of human design. It follows a recent photo shoot in China, photographing the effects of that country's massive industrial revolution, showing us a glimpse of what it's like behind the scenes for a famous photographer in action

"Born in Eastern Kentucky, [Shelby Lee] Adams has devoted 30 years of his life to visiting and making portraits of families living in Appalachia, those who have been misrepresented in the media and derogatorily referred to as 'hillbillies' ... [The film] also delves into the controversy that surrounds Adams' work, with hot debate amongst the critics, and revealing commentary from his friends and subjects ... along the way, we get to know both Adams and the extraordinary people who stand in front of his camera."--Container

Manufactured landscapes Paysages fabriqués ( visu )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Depuis plus de trois décennies, le photographe canadien Edward Burtynsky croque les images d'une nature souillée par la pollution et l'industrialisation, qu'il développe ensuite sur des panneaux de très grands formats. Dépotoirs, terrains vagues, usines, marécages, sont les sujets de ses photographies, d'un esthétisme raffiné, prises au Canada et dans le reste du monde. La cinéaste Jennifer Baichwal l'a suivi lors d'un voyage en Chine, pays mythique dont Burtynsky voulait documenter les bouleversements industriels. Étape ultime de leur parcours: le gigantesque barrage des Trois Gorges, qui a forcé l'évacuation de 1,1 million de personnes
