ON THE COVER:
Thjorsa River #1, Iceland, 2012 (Detail) by Edward Burtynsky.
Renowned Canadian Photographer Edward Burtynsky spent five years photographing water around the world — its sources and end points, its uses and abuses. His photos from Iceland are his first in over 30 years focussing specifically on pristine wilderness, instead of the imposition of human systems upon it. The photographs from the Water series foreshadow the extent to which our future depends on our everyday behaviour in dealing with this increasingly scarce resource.
