One of our favorite London galleries, the newly re-opened and renovated Photographers’ Gallery is currently showing the work of Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky. The exhibition Oil spans two floors, documenting the effect oil has on modern living through large-scale color photography. Divided into three themes: Production and Refinement, Transportation and Motor Culture and the somber sounding The End of Oil, this fascinating exhibition explores the global oil industrial landscape from vast oil fields and oil refineries to American highways and deserted oil tankers in Bangladesh. A beautiful and haunting exhibition of a global industry in decline – don’t miss this if you are in London. – Anna Jacobsen

Runs through July 1st
