The Mysts of Landfills by Yao Lu

While on the outset you may believe Yao’s work resembles the ancient Chinese landscape paintings of shrouded mountaintops and ghostlike valleys, you’d need to look a little closer because the deception runs deep here: pictured above are actually photographs Yao takes of towering mounds of garbage covered in protective nets and bedazzled with a little Photoshoppical chicanery. The serene, contemplative majesty of the Chinese countryside quickly turns to disgust with this Uncanny Valley-esque effect.
