All of these documentaries Iv been watching mention sustainability at some point, some more than once. It seems to be a big topic to many photographers which is adapted lots of different ways; Vivian Maier would sustain her identity role as a nanny to the end of the earth so she could do all the things she wanted to do, or at least it opened more opportunities to experience her life, adapting to different lifestyles and impacting the people around here positivly. Photographing her life everyday Vivian captured amazing moments with herself, children and on the streets of America. Burtynsky mentions he is searching for a sustainable process within these manufactured landscapes that are exhausting the world, coming across the largest processes and landscapes which are sustaining the unsustainable production of oil, food, land, sea and much more. Questioning societies processes on a whole, making photographs which show scale, detail, colour, patterns, symmetry, uniformity and people within these scenes. These images kind of unify the ideas of what current industry looks and works like, the scale is fkng ridiculous. The images of the oil fields shows such a dirty and old looking landscape that is full of these man made mosquito looking machines just sucking the earth dry. But yeah all worth the watch.
