I could never turn away from my history . . . That’s the part of me that made me what I am now. That strength that I have is my pride in who I am. My heritage.

Hood Quarterly, spring 2014

The tension between visual punch and global industrial “documentation” is a signature of photographer Edward Burtynsky’s work, and the Hood’s recent acquisition is a stunning example of this. In this photograph, Burtynsky explores the interconnectedness between industrial progress, geological history, and social human history through images of the marks we leave upon the Earth as a result of all three.
