Edward Burtynsky

Eaux troublées – Christophe Guye Galerie

"Without water, we die. (...) When you affect its natural course, there are always winners and losers. From the moment that water cannot take its own path to the sea or be absorbed by the soil, we change the landscape." – Edward Burtynsky

MBAL is presenting the exhibition 'Eaux troublées' (engl. Troubled Waters) by renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky (Canada, 1955), which explores in an immersive way the multiple uses of water by humans. Alarmingly, water is becoming an increasingly scarce resource. With his fascinating and frightening aerial shots, the artist reveals what is at stake. Travelling across the five continents, from the Gulf of Mexico to the banks of the Ganges, Burtynsky confronts us with the global scandal of water pollution, the consequence of human irresponsibility.
