Silent Cities by Yang Yongliang
Emerging from the ancient mists of a traditional Chinese painting, Yang’s sprawling landscapes get progressively more insidious as the details slowly come into focus: his photographic collages depict humanity’s inevitable conversion of nature into a soulless, inorganic machine. To really appreciate his intricate attention to detail, you’ve got to put your eyeballs right up close with this hi-res photo. Or see it in person at Yang’s exhibit at Galerie Paris-Beijing in Paris from March 14th through April 27th, 2013.
