New Photographs from Edward Burtynsky and Seminal Photographs by Lynne Cohen
Nicholas Metivier Gallery is pleased to participate in Paris Photo 2021, Booth #C1.
Our presentation this year will feature an exclusive release of new photographs from Edward Burtynsky's forthcoming project on the subject of Africa. Looking at both the natural African landscape as well as areas that have been transformed through resource extraction, Burtynsky creates otherworldly compositions that are punctuated with intense colour and remarkable detail.
We will also feature a selection of seminal photographs by Lynne Cohen, shown in partnership with Olga Korper Gallery. Two of Canada's most important photographers, this will be the first time their work has been exhibited together. Burtynsky and Cohen shared a mutual respect for each other's practices, both using the latest photographic technologies and finding deep and otherwise undetected beauty in the man-made.
