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.

Oyako by Bruce Osborn

Bruce Osborn was born in Southern California and raised on its surf and skateboard culture. After graduating from the University of the Pacific with a BA in Fine Art, he studied Photography at Art Center College of Design. He began working for Phonograph Record Magazine as their photographer and photo editor and also did free lance photography for other music related businesses. In 1980 Bruce moved to Japan where he is a well known commercial photographer and filmmaker.

Oyako means parents-children in Japanese and is the title of a series I have been photographing since 1982. In the process of photographing hundreds of parents and children it has become my life work. Focusing on this basic relationship, I am able to see the changes that Japanese society is going through.
