Conscientious Photography Yao Lu: New Landscapes

                                       Yao Lu: Sustainability Visualized

Yao Lu has created a thoughtful and timely series inspired by traditional Chinese paintings entitled New Landscapes in which mounds of garbage covered in green protective nets are assembled and reworked by a computer to create images of rural mountain landscapes shrouded in the mist.

Lying somewhere between painting and photography, between the past and the present, Yao Lu's work speaks of the radical mutations affecting nature in China as is it subjected to rampant urbanization and the ecological threats that endanger the environment.
