Di Liu, a 25 year old chinese photographer, just won the 2010 lacoste elysée prize. His work examines the relationship between animals and the city, and it’s totally awesome.
The perpetual conflict between man and nature is illustrated by young Chinese photographer Di Liu in a series of photos depicting oversized animals at odds with their settings. The rapid changes in urban development play a major role, of course, in this conflict. However, despite the seriousness of the situation, Di Liu chooses to highlight it by using humor and playing with scale.
