Announcing Keynote Luncheon Speaker Edward Burtynsky
Edward Burtynsky is known as one of Canada's most respected photographers. His remarkable photographs are included in the collections of over fifty major museums around the world, including the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in California.
Burtynsky’s new film Watermark and his highly anticipated book Water tells us stories of where water comes from, how we use it, distribute and often, waste it. Frequently using a bird’s-eye perspective, the photographer shows us water’s remote sources, remarkable ancient step-wells and mass bathing rituals. Come to the Canadian Water Summit to hear and see this iconic Canadian’s perspective on water.
