In spring 2020 Edward Burtynsky found himself, like most of us, in lockdown due to the corona pandemic. At the time Burtynsky was in his beloved Grey County, Ontario-an area of wild beauty where he made his earliest photos-and he used his isolation there to reflect and create: with a new camera in hand he began recording nature in images which, in his words, are an affirmation of the complexity, wonder and resilience of the natural order in all things.

The book is a key feature of the portfolio that was part of the Natural Order series release. Burtynsky, together with Nicholas Metivier Gallery in Toronto, are donating $200,000 CAD from the proceeds of the sale of the Natural Order portfolio to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) and the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC) for the establishment of new acquisition funds dedicated to acquiring the works by emerging to mid-career Canada photographic artists.

Further details regarding this important initiative to support the Canadian photography community during the COVID-19 crisis will be made available in late 2020.

Reviews for Edward Burtynsky: Natural Order

Last year, early in the pandemic, Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky was isolating in rural Ontario, where he's long owned a place. Over the course of those uncertain weeks, he photographed the transition, as he describes it, from the frigid sleep of winter to the fecund urgency of spring. Compiled into a monograph, titled Natural Order, the images show the earth continuing on its path even as human activity slowed to a standstill.-- Wall Street Journal
