Burdeny's work has at its heart a quest for "thresholds and liminality -- places that seem somehow a bridge between the concrete and the ephemeral, elevated above time, hallowed," as he says. His search for the sublime is evident in both his lush interiors and stark, elegant landscapes. Utilizing unusually long exposures, Burdeny enables the viewer to see that which the eye alone cannot. His work encourages a sense of mystery, a desire to look deeper, to slow down. His geographies carefully balance the sacred and profane, the spiritual and pedestrian, but beyond that, they make palpable his brilliant technical understanding of space and structure. Burdeny has a Masters in Architecture and Interior Design, a career he pursued before establishing himself as a photographer. His photographs have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the US and throughout Europe. His work has also been widely published - including most recently in Casa Vogue, The Guardian, The Corriere Dela Sera and the Moscow Times - and has been recognized with multiple International Photography Awards. In 2016, Burdeny was selected as International Nature Photographer of the Year for his series Salt.
