WATER, an upcoming exhibit of Edward Burtynsky photographs, is on NWNL’s radar. His photography addresses categories: distressed ecosystems, infrastructure control, agriculture, aquaculture, waterfront, and waterway sources. Two NYC galleries will feature his work in mid-September-November: Howard Greenberg Gallery and Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery.
Watermark, a documentary film by Burtynsky in collaboration with Jennifer Baichwal, explores the impacts of consumption and development on our planet’s water resources.
