"Pollution in China" Documents industrial toll on the environment
Lu Guang, a freelance photographer from the People's Republic of China, won the 2009 W. Eugene Smith Grant in Humanistic Photography. He shot a series of images illuminating the environmental devastation resulting from an industrial society more concerned with the quantity of exports produced than the quality or global impact.
While this photography is almost a year old, we thought it was powerful enough to pass along.
Warning: You may find many of these images disturbing and/or graphic.
