About this title:

Synopsis: Salt Pans is Edward Burtynsky’s newest book in his acclaimed ongoing series of photographs exploring different industrialized landscapes across the world. Consisting of 31 aerial photos of the salt pans in the Little Rann of Kutch, the project is the result of months of intricate negotiations and preparations. These striking geometric images, taken in an intense ten-day period during which Burtynsky photographed from a helicopter, present the pans, wells and vehicle tracks as abstract, painterly patterns: subtly colored rectangles crossed by grids of gestural lines.

And yet the reality behind the ironic beauty of Burtynsky’s pictures is a harsh one. Each year 100,000 poorly paid Agariya workers toil in the pans, extracting over a million tons of salt from the floodwaters of the nearby Arabian Sea. Furthermore, receding groundwater levels, combined with debt, diminishing market values as well as a lack of governmental support, threaten the future of this 400-year-old tradition and the lives dependent on it.

The images in this book are not about the battles being fought on the ground. Rather, they examine this ancient method of providing one of the most basic elements of our diet; as primitive industry and as abstract two-dimensional human marks upon the landscape. Edward Burtynsky

Review: The question the photographer poses is profound: In our own epoch, are we no more responsible than the great sheets of ice that covered continents during another time?--Albert Mobilio "Bookforum "

[Edward Burtynsky]'s bird's-eye views, often captured from planes, helicopters and, more recently, drones, take an unsparing look at the relationship between humans and nature.--Stephen Wallis "Wall Street Journal "

There is a sublimity to Edward Burtynsky's remarkable aerial views of industrialized landscapes, but they reflect a harsh reality...[Burtynsky's] photographs set politics and aesthetics at the same table.--Artdesk
