In Conversation with Edward Burtynsky

Live from Australian Museum

75 minutes

Edward Burtynsky is one of the world’s most accomplished contemporary photographers. His remarkable depictions of global industrial landscapes represent 40 years dedicated to bearing witness to the impact of humans on the planet. His photographs are displayed in over 60 of the world’s major museums and most recently he was awarded the Outstanding Contribution to Photography (2022) title by the World Photography Organisation.  

Many of Burtynsky’s most impactful images have now been collected and choreographed to an original score to create In the Wake of Progress, a moving digital art experience tracking humanity’s impact on the planet. Premiering at Luminato Festival Toronto last year In the Wake of Progress now comes to Sydney, and along with it – Edward himself.

Hear about the life and work of this extraordinary artist in his own words when he settles in for a conversation with ABC Radio’s James Valentine

This broadcast will be livestreamed on Thursday 1st September, 7:30pm from the Hintze Hall, Australian Museum.
