Last night great Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky was in Singapore, at Sundaram Tangore gallery in the Gillman Barracks to screen his new visions in the documentary WATERMARK.
A series of extremely impressive sequences from around the globe showing the relationship of humanity with water.
As he explained it has to be a very fine balance between the content and the aesthetic appeal of the image in order to be effective and be able to communicate.
In principle all the contents are not really unknown or unseen, but is precisely the way they are ’seen’ that matters and suggests broader reflections, because it’s a dolly shot of many different phenomena that otherwise wouldn’t be related in your mind. As Alicia pointed out, it’s the sharp but yet simple synthesis the great ability of this ’movie’.
Highly recommended to everyone who’s not afraid about how humanity is ’diverting’ he flows of the planet.
