Photographer's Note

The last thing I expected to see when looking out the window of my Liuzhou hotel in southern China, was a portrait of the Italian Renaissance masterpiece of the Mona Lisa smiling back at me. The company name is in English, too: 'Mona Lisa Tiles'. I've boosted both saturation and contrast to try and compensate for the thick hazy air pollution. Apparently it's much better than it used to be, but the water supply was contaminated with cadmium when I was there. Luckily I only had one glass of water for coffee. I boiled it but didn't find out about the water pollution until I got back to Wuxi. 5 government officials were fired from their jobs. More info on Liuzhou here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liuzhou
