ED­WARD BURTYNKSY

“Peo­ple vs. the Planet,” p. 28

The Walrus - - CONTRIBUTORS’ NOTES -

“In the past, I’ve worked on sev­eral big themes—china, then oil, then wa­ter. With The An­thro­pocene Project, Jen­nifer, Ni­cholas, and I looked at the planet as a whole. Once peo­ple see the scale at which hu­mans are op­er­at­ing—the scale of re­source ex­trac­tion—and how that scale is a con­se­quence of a world pop­u­la­tion of 7.6 bil­lion, it could change how they view hu­man ac­tiv­ity.”

Ed­ward Bur­tyn­sky was named Photo London’s Mas­ter of Photography in 2018. He col­lab­o­rated with Jen­nifer Baich­wal and Ni­cholas de Pencier on The An­thro­pocene Project, a mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary project that in­cludes a doc­u­men­tary, a book, an ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram, and a mul­ti­me­dia mu­seum ex­hi­bi­tion. The film pre­miered at the Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val, and the ex­hi­bi­tions opened at the Art Gallery of On­tario and in the Na­tional Gallery of Canada in Septem­ber.
