This summer, witness the epic tale of humanity’s impact on the planet at Edward Burtynsky’s new indoor immersive experience, In the Wake of Progress. This fully choreographed blend of photographs and film from world-renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky immerses you into a powerful 30-minute experience of global landscapes, revealing primordial beauty alongside the stark impacts of human industry.  

In the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic and as we face the climate crisis, Burtynsky’s latest project dares us to have an important conversation about the legacy of the widespread impacts of human industry and what it means for the future of life on this planet.

These images are meant as metaphors for the dilemma of our modern existence; they search for a dialogue between attraction and repulsion, seduction and fear. We are drawn by desire, a chance at good living, yet we are consciously or unconsciously aware that the world is suffering for our success. Our dependence on nature to provide the materials for our consumption, and our concern for the health of our planet, sets us into an uneasy contradiction. For me, these images function as reflecting pools of our times.”
