Beautiful Chinese Landscapes Are Actually Photographs Of Landfills

You might be asking yourself why Beautiful/Decay is posting images of traditional Chinese Landscapes but if you look just a bit closer you’ll see that in fact these images are highly sophisticated digital manipulations of mounds of garbage and landfills. Yao Lu, the Chinese artist responsible for this brilliantly deceiving body of work begins her process by  photographing mounds of garbage covered in green protective nets which he assembles and reworks by computer to create bucolic images of mountain landscapes shrouded in the mist inspired by traditional Chinese paintings. 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 it is subjected to rampant urbanization and the ecological threats that endanger it.
