Abstract (English)

"Publication focusing on Burtynsky's large scale photographs which document the construction of the Three Gorges Dam in the Yangtze River. Dault draws attention to how the photos differ in relation to the artist's past work and suggests the images are "about the people whose lives will be forever changed..." Lackner provides a thorough socio-historical description of the world's largest hydroelectric plant, pointing to the anticipated benefits (clean energy, less flooding, new ports, employment, tourism) and detriments (ecological distress, displacement of people, loss of archaeological sites)." -- Cataloger's notes.
