Kevin Raber and Edward Burtynsky discuss one of his prints
My interview with Ed Burtynsky continues with this final segment. This is the part I enjoyed the most as Ed and I talk about his prints and why and how he makes such big prints. For Ed, it’s all about the print. As he explains when looking through the viewfinder he is composing for the look. But, when the print is made the magic comes alive as the most minute details become visible.
I call it immersive imaging and for me, it is where the viewer looks at a large print from a distance and then finds something of interest and moves closer and closer to the print discovering new things in the print along the way. Ed calls it the six-inch test. The bottom line -Ed’s prints need to be viewed large and inspected close up. There are treasures to be seen in his photographs.
