[PHOTO] Three photos from The Edge of the Earth, Ryerson Image Centre
The latest exhibition at the Ryerson Image Centre, The Edge of the Earth, is an exhibtion of unsettling photography looking at the ways humanity has changed the Earth in the Anthropocene, and the way the Earth looks now.
Peter Goins’ 1988 photograph of the cone that marks the site where the Trinity bomb exploded in 1945 is stunning in its simplicity.
Benoit Aquin’s photo of an Inner Mongolian city swept by a dust storm in 2006 likewise says much.
The nearly cartographic precision of Mishra Jenner’s overhead photo of a Texas county criss-crossed by oil fields is stunning.
This exhibition is running until the 4th of December. I highly recommend it.
