What seems at first to be a scene of natural devastation is in fact a largescale man-made shaping of the landscape - the Three Gorges Project on the Yangtze River in China. Edward Burtynsky makes such transformations the subject of his spectacular colour photographs, which can be seen at Flowers East,82 Kingsland Road, London E2 from 21 May-15 June (020 7290 7777). Coinciding with this exhibition, Yale University Press has produced an impressive book by Burtynsky called Manufactured Landscapes (160pp.

£45), which looks both panoramically and in detail at industrialised nature.
