A stunning photograph of a submerged tree taken by Flickr user Melinda while visiting the incredibly beautiful Jiuzhaigou Valley in China. She also runs a great blog with all kinds of beautiful landscape goodness, well worth a visit. (via fasels suppe)

Jiang Pengyi’s Miniature Decaying Urban Landscapes

September 12, 2011

(click images for detail)

When checking out the Blindspot Gallery site I almost skipped right over these photographs by Jiang Pengyi thinking they were nothing more than ruin porn, but a closer glance revealed something quite different. Amongst the filthy detritus in Pengyi’s photographs, entire miniature cities emerge from the shadows, as if the evolution of cockroaches had dramatically accelerated resulting in the construction of bug-sized skyscrapers and transit systems. Though the photos aren’t meant as commentary on wildlife, but rather the excessive urbanization, redevelopment and demolition in the city of Beijing. Many more images here.

China in a Mirror

I’m loving the symmetry created in these mirror photographs of urban China by Austrian designer and photographer Atelier Olschinsky. See the entire series here, and his recently published illustrations entitled Game Zone are pretty mind-blowing as well.

Gravity Defying Li Wei

October 27, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Wonderful photos by Chinese photographer Li Wei. His projects include dozens of site-specific performance pieces that depict bizarre events such as a head flying solo around Beijing or bodies lodged in car windows and walls. His web site appears to be running on a toaster though, so be prepared to wait a bit.
