“Chino Mine #5, Sil­ver City, New Mex­ico, USA, 2012”

Toronto Life - - The Best Place to Live -

Bur­tyn­sky and his crew couldn’t get per­mis­sion to visit the Chino cop­per mine, which has been in op­er­a­tion since 1910. In­stead, he hired a pilot with a Cessna. They flew back and forth over the pit, which stretches for nearly three kilo­me­tres and is more than 400 me­tres deep. The re­sult­ing pho­tos show Bur­tyn­sky at his most ab­stract, cap­tur­ing un­du­lat­ing forms and mag­nif­i­cent gra­da­tions of colour.
