Amazing altered photographs by Chinese artist Yao Lu. We found Yao’s work via the website io9 and they wrote about his work, “Lu takes photographs of Chinese landfills covered in green protective netting and then digitally adds the sort of imagery we’d expect to see in a classic watercolor landscape: mist, trees, waterfalls, and the occasional building dotting the hills of trash. It’s a clever way to use photo manipulation to convey his message about the natural world and how it is in danger of being displaced by the castoffs of urbanization.”
I saw these when I was in Beijing last year, loved them and never knew who the artist was. Thanks fine lines!
