Focus on this vital and threatened resource.

The Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky is world famous for his large-format photographs of landscapes shaped by humans and large conurbations.

The Kunst Haus Wien presents his first solo exhibition in Austria. It shows Burtynsky's current work on a crucial subject: water, a precious resource. Burtynsky has travelled across five continents to explore ecological extremes.

With their visual abstraction and perfect composition, the photographs have a poetic aesthetic which contrasts with the brutal content of the images themselves.
