The Ontario Heritage Trust invites you to watch Heritage Matters Live with Edward Burtynsky – a free virtual talk featuring the renowned Canadian photographer and filmmaker, whose stunning photos explore large-scale social, political and economic issues affecting our planet.

In his critically acclaimed film ANTHROPOCENE: The Human Epoch, co-directed by Burtynsky, Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier, the impact of humans on the planet at a global scale, was the primary focus. In this eye-opening talk, drawn from all he has witnessed during his 40 years bearing witness to the planet’s changing landscapes, Burtynsky discusses – and demonstrates in his incredible, large-scale photographs – that we’ve reached an unprecedented moment in history.
