Special preview at Outernet of Burtynsky: Extraction / Abstraction at Saatchi Gallery

This exhibition marks the largest exhibition ever mounted in the 40+ year career of the world-renowned photographic artist, who has dedicated his practice to bearing witness to the impact of human industry on the planet.

A centerpiece of the exhibition is the immersive film presentation of In the Wake of Progress (2022).  A never-before-seen element in this exhibition, referred to as the “Process Archive,” will also showcase Burtynsky’s navigation through each of the technological shifts in the photographic medium that have occurred over recent decades.

Edward Burtynsky said:

“I have spent over 40 years bearing witness to how modern civilisation has dramatically transformed our planet. At this time, the awareness of these issues presented by my large format images has never felt more urgent. I am grateful to be mounting the largest exhibition of my career at Saatchi Gallery in London, UK and I hope the exhibition experience will continue to provide inflection points for diverse conversations on these issues and move us all to a place of positive action.”
