The Prix Pictet sets out to find photographs that communicate important messages about global environmental issues under a broad theme. Here are a few selected photographs taken by, Edward Burtynsky. As part of the pre-production process, I’m now at the stage of storyboarding. I will be going up to London on Tuesday (tomorrow) to photograph some shots I want to include in the video. Like in the images below, which depict the destruction of man made structures, I want to photograph things that convey the idea of ‘disconnection’.

I like these photographs because although they are showing really industrial run down locations, they’re actually quite attractive to look at. The first image has a nice reflection on the water, almost making it symmetrical. I’ll be using photographs as part of the documentary, which will exist as a digital gallery within the digital publication.
