The changing face of oil in the world, transformed by people

Toronto-based photographer Edward Burtynsky, whom we’ve raved about before, is on a mission to document how we all are transforming our natural world on an industrial scale, from stone to minerals, oil, transportation and silicon.

His pictures of oil-themed landscapes (‘I… think about oil itself: as both the source of energy that makes everything possible, and as a source of dread, for its ongoing endangerment of our habitat’) from oil spills off the Gulf of Mexico, to the oil fields of California, are extraordinary.
