Just after Christmas, I had tweeted a photo about an Edward Burtynsky book I was reading, and my good friend MIke asked if I’d be interested in attending a Burtynsky exhibit at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery in January. I jumped at the opportunity. So a week and a half ago, another friend Paul and I headed down to Kitchener and checked out the exhibit. Burtynsky does a lot of work with “manufactured landscapes” and creates some surreal images. I highly recommend checking out his stuff in person if you have the opportunity.
Following the exhibit we grabbed a bite to eat before doing a photo walk around downtown Kitchener. It was flippin’ cold that day. Luckily, we were able to dip into local buildings and out of the weather every so often, so it wasn’t too bad.
Below is an iPhone shot of a part of the exhibit, followed by some photos taken on the walkabout. Shot with Nikon F3HP, Adox Silvermax 100 and Foma Retropan 320 black and white films.
