Oil and Art

7 Dec

A few weeks ago I went to go see OIL, an exhibition by renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky, at the McCord Museum. The series, composed of 56 large photographs, explores the subject of oil from production to distribution, and also shows the impact of oil consumption on our lives and on the environment. The photos are stunning, disturbing and thought-provoking. A must see! The exhibition is on until January 8, 2012.
