Corcoran Gallery of Art has invited the media to an exclusive preview of Edward Burtynsky: Oil.

Organized by the Corcoran, this exhibition will show 56 large-scale color landscapes, many on view for the first time, by Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky.

The exhibition opens to the public on Saturday, October 3, 2009.

Edward Burtynsky: Oil is organized by the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and sponsored by the Scotiabank Group.

"For Oil, Burtynsky traveled for more than a decade to chronicle the global production, distribution, and use of oil, the energy source that has shaped the modern world," informs Corcoran. "This world premiere exhibition provides a penetrating look at one of the most important subjects of our time, by one of the most respected and recognized contemporary photographers in the world."

After closing at the Corcoran on December 13, the exhibition will embark on an international tour through 2012.
