Water: Edward Burtynsky

Burtynsky’s global portrait explores humanity’s increasingly stressed relationship with water, the world’s most vital natural resource. These 13 hauntingly beautiful photographic images encourage us to ponder whether current water-management strategies are among humankind’s great achievements or its most dangerous failures.
