See Edward Burtynsky at the Canada House Gallery

An under-visited central London art gallery is found on Trafalgar Square, where a small room within Canada House, the home of the High Commission of Canada in London, shows exhibitions of art and artefacts, usually promoting Canadian culture.The current exhibition is of the work of Canadian photographer and artist Edward Burtynsky, who is known for his photographs of industrial landscapes.

The exhibition features large prints of some of Burtynsky's photographs featuring variously a Chinese chicken factory, an Australian open cast mine and the Markarflj├│t River in Iceland. It's free and worth a visit.

  1. I visited Canada House years ago and cannot remember a gallery at all. But it seems that the latest renovations have brought back the interior architecture to a very high standard.

    One complex that I DO know well is the Imperial War Museum in London ....this collection has great Canadian art from WW1!
