Howard Greenberg Gallery presents an exhibition from photographer Edward Burtynky, which maps the unprecedented impact of human intervention on Earth with Anthropocène.

For The Anthropocene Project, Burtynsky visited 20 countries on every continent except Antarctica, including the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Norway, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Kenya, and Nigeria. The exhibitions – with photographs dating from 2012 to 2017 – highlight the artist’s visual exploration into the global consequences of coastal erosion, logging, mining, and industrial agriculture with subjects ranging from the surreal lithium evaporation ponds in the Atacama Desert in Chile to the psychedelic potash mines in Russia’s Ural Mountains.
 
For 35 years, Burtynsky's photographic projects have led him around the world, recording the intersection of industrial growth and environmental consciousness. His previous subjects range from urban renewal centers and housing projects to recycling yards, rock quarries, and the skeletons of decommissioned shipping vessels and containers.
