Saw these beautiful photos at the NPR: Sustainability and Photography competition website. These photos by Yao Lu definitely received my vote. The scenery are actually piles of dump and waste. If I had this hung on my wall, my mom would probably not even notice the difference between these and the more traditional watercolors.

Edgar Martins is on the list of selected artists also, although, I much prefer his other series, Topologies. I know this is more in line with the theme of environmental sustainability, but the images lack the playful melancholy I find so interesting in his other works.

  1. That’s a great pick from Edgar Martins! I love this shot!
    I have a suggestion: add a link to the NPR page you are referring to.
