Our latest Art Focus article introduces the work of Chinese photographer Yao Lu. In particular, his latest series of digitally modified photographs entitled New Landscapes caught our eye Рfeaturing transformed piles of garbage covered in green protective netting tricking the eye (with the placement of additional items) to see traditional Chinese landscape paintings. The work makes a powerful political statement as to the cost of the rapid urbanization of China juxtaposed against the beautiful scenery that has been lost forever because of said modern development.
