Edward Burtynsky: WA Mines

These photographs are by Edward Burtynsky. His work examins the excavation the ground and of the human. There is something slightly apocalyptic about them and its interesting how he makes them show the effects of industry, demand and commerce. I have included some of his photographs of mines in Western Australia. These photographs are stunning but the aggressive nature of industry is evident.
