Manufactured Landscapes

I may have posted here about Edward Burtynsky's work before, but last night I finally saw the film he made with Jennifer Baichwal and I am now of the opinion that everyone should see it. He claims he produces this work with impartiality to the manufacturing world, but after seeing the images and watching the movie it is hard to image that he isn't doing all this to expose the reality of what it means to exist as a consumer in a world of mass produced objects.

It is fascinating, horrifying, stunning, and beautiful.
