I’m really looking forward to seeing the photographic works of acclaimed Canadian photographer Edward Burtyntsky right here in the Vancouver area. His exhibition ‘The China Series’ has been up for a while and runs until November 5th at Presentation House Gallery in North Vancouver. The artist will be in attendance at the reception Tuesday, October 10, 7 pm at the gallery.

Edward Burtyntsky will also be at the screening of the documentary ‘Manufactured Landscapes’ at the Vancouver International Film Festival.. Directed by Jennifer Baichwal, it follows the photographer as he travels the globe shooting landscapes transformed through commercial recycling, manufacturing and industry. That’s on Wednesday, October 11, 9:15 pm and on Thursday, October 12, 11:30 am at Empire Granville Theatre Cinemas #3.

Do read the exhibition statement at the Presentation House site and visit Edward Burtyntsky’s very informative website. Of course he’s been written about a great deal in the past few years, including in this blog. CBC recently wrote about the film, and so did Zeke.

P.S. I almost forgot, Gordon Coale wrote a review of the book Burtyntsky-China.
