Yang Yongliang was born in 1980 in Shanghai, China. He is well-known for his black and white photographic collages depicting the devastating effects of uninhibited industrialization and urbanization. At first glance, his work looks like a peaceful traditional Chinese painting, a closer look would reveal mountains chock-full of factories, buildings, and machinery. Three of his most recent collections: Silent Valley, Moonlight, and a Bowl of Taipei were displayed over at the Galerie Paris-Beijing.
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
