Item description for Burtynsky - China by Edward Burtynsky, Marc Mayer, Ted C. Fishman & Mark Kingwell...

In this book, Edward Burtynsky presents photographs of the remnant and newly established zones of Chinese industrialization - those places created while realizing the "glory" of wealth for a powerful civilization yearning to move forward and join the ranks of modern nations. Using diplomatic channels, Burtynsky has gained rare access to these sites, creating images that are at once arresting and unsettling. These photographs afford us privileged glimpses of the vast social and economic transformation currently underway in China.
Burtynsky casts a watchful eye over the extreme expressions of Chinese industry. His subjects include the Three Gorges Dam, at present the world's largest engineering project and Bao Steel, China's biggest steel producer. He explores the vanishing dinosaurs of old industrial complexes in the north eastern "rust belt" and shipyards at Qiligang, the single most concentrated area of shipbuilding in the country.

Reviews - What do customers think about Burtynsky - China?

Beautiful book disfigured by Amazon's packaging  Dec 25, 2007
A beautiful book disfigured by this site's packaging. The tight plastic shrink-wrap bent the corners of the book, greatly reducing its value as a part of my collection. This isn't the first time that a photo-book from this site has arrived already marred. It's a shame.
A significant and breathtaking record  Jun 13, 2007
As a record of this time in the world's history ... the dismantling of local industry around the world in tacit acquiescence of China's future dominance ... I can't think of a more significant body of work in the medium. The images herein are truly breathtaking for their scale. Burtynsky has a privileged view and uses crisp large-format photography to lend authority to his vision. The monumental is not without a humanizing touch as can be seen best in his beautiful ship-building images. This is a wonderful book with images that one can marvel at for their execution whilst viewing with trepidation for their portent. The printing and presentation complements the images.
Interesting landscape  Mar 26, 2007
Large format, interesting photographs of China. I was worried his work might not translate in a book, but if you like his work, not to worry about that.
Over all it's a nice book of a good photographer  Jan 9, 2007
I realy like Edward Burtysky as a photographer and this book shows sokme really nice photo's. But for some reason some of his photo's took me by surprise as I saw them in a completely different lightfrom other photos of which he took. it's a bit hard to explain but it almost seems like two different photographers were sharing this wonderful, 147 pages, Hardcover book.
large format photography  Jan 9, 2007
Nice and wonderful.
If you like large format details
this is to see

BUT I'm very angry because the package by this site wasn't efficently prepared to the reality of post office.
