Edward Burtynsky comes to Middlebury to speak about his photographic career on the occasion of the exhibition of his work at the college museum. His works are internationally acclaimed for their haunting verisimilitude as well as their unwavering focus on “nature transformed through industry.” Tremendous in both scale and ambition, their global reach includes recycling yards, quarries, factories, and refineries. The subject of major exhibitions world-wide, Burtynsky’s photographs are in the collections of more than fifty major museums, including our own.
Sponsored by the Middlebury College Museum of Art, the Department of History of Art and Architecture, the Franklin Environmental Center, the Program in Environmental Studies, and the Academic Enrichment Fund.
