What if some of today's most thought-provoking artistic photography depicted the darker side of the modern industrialized world?

That question may be answered at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, where the surreal images of world renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky are to be showcased.

The shocking industrial images in the Edward Burtynsky exhibit are not doctored images, they are real photographs of the effects of man on Earth.

Implications - Edward Burtynsky is not only an amazing photographer, but also an innovative thinker. He once posed the questions, "how do you photograph something you can't see?" His photos are raw, real and full of emotion. His works are enough to ignite a passion in people that they may not have expected.
