Ed Burtynsky's Augmented Reality

Smart phones have made everyone a perpetual photographer – with 1 trillion photos taken last year alone. How do the pros compete in an age of abundance? They hunt for scarcity.

Through augmented reality, virtual reality and photogrammetry, iconic Canadian photographer Ed Burtynsky and AVARA Media have embarked on an epic journey to transport viewers to places on Earth that most will never see in person.

Burtynsky and Vikas Gupta of AVARA Media join RBC Disruptors to explore photography’s next frontier and how they’re trying to use technology to help save the planet from irreversible damage caused by climate change.
