Smog Posters from China

More @ China Dialogue. An exhibition of smog-inspired posters is touring the polluted cities of northern and eastern China this month to draw attention to the impending environmental disaster. Created by a group of Chinese designers, the 300 posters depict the terrifying face of smog to show how pollution changes our lives - and even our genes: One image shows a baby with a birthmark in the shape of a mask over his face. The posters have resonated with people in China and elsewhere. A Mr Wang, who has taken his family to live abroad, said on WeChat that “although we’re not in China, our compatriots back home suffering, and that makes every Chinese person sad.”
