Over the past five years, Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky travelled across the globe, from the Gulf of Mexico to the shores of the Ganges, weaving together an ambitious representation of water’s increasingly fragmented lifecycle. In more than 50 large-scale photographs, many bordering on the edge of abstraction, Burtynsky traces the various roles that water plays in modern life — as a source of healthy ecosystems and energy, as a key element in cultural and religious rituals, and as a rapidly depleting yet most vital natural resource.
