manufactured landscapes

after work today i went a saw a movie: a documentary about photographer edward burtynsky's work in china. i do not think it was a great documentary, but some of the images were amazing. it's kind of hard to describe so here's the trailer.

burtynsky is a slightly unconventional landscape photographer whose work i found fascinating. if i had to describe the movie in three words i would choose: enlightening, mesmerizing, and slow. anyway, it's playing in costa mesa if you're interested. you can see some of his work here.
