Animal Regulation by Di Liu


The perpetual conflict between man and nature is illustrated by young Chinese photographer Liu Di 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, Liu Di chooses to highlight it by using humour and playing with scale. And he was the recipient of the 2010 Lacoste √Člysee Prize because of it.
