Pollution in China Captured by Lu Guang, Winner of 2009 W. Eugene Smith Award

Filed under: China — admin @ 12:53 am

Photographer Lu Guang of China has won the 2009 W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography for his four-year project on the effects of pollution in China. For more of his work on pollution in China, go to fengniao site.

My daughter was deeply disturbed seeing the human tolls brought upon by pollution in China. “It is wrong. And it is even more wrong if we don’t do something to stop the wrong.” Hopefully, Lu’s work will wake the world up to the stark reality of pollution in China and to more legal, collective and governmental actions.
