@natgeo together with @paolowoods /// Yaoliang Liu working on a copy of a Picasso. Yaoliang Liu is a 49-year-old painter that lives in Dafen, a small village on the outskirts of Shenzhen famous for being the world hub of painting reproduction. Here scores of painters work reproducing anything from Leonardo’s Mona Lisa to Warhol’s Marilyn from Van Gogh’s Sunflowers to classic Chinese art. Most copies are ordered trough internet where clients can choose the original to be reproduced, the size, the frame and even change the colors of the original to better suit particular needs. It is a real industry that even copies and produces in an assembly line manner with some artists specialize in one area of the painting (like the sky in Van Gogh’s Starry Night). Liu reproduces Picasso’s daily and cannot quantify how many he has made in his career. #picasso #dafen #china #pablopicasso #reproduction #shenzhen #art #cubism #fake #paintingOn assignment for

@edoardo_delille #drone #dronephoto #dronephotography @djiglobal #fly #drones #dji #brazil #rio #riodejaneiroIn Rio de Janeiro, sports are life – and life is not a spectator sport. Little playing fields steal back space from the asphalt and traffic circles, defying cars and buildings alike. They creep in amongst the steep and winding streets and are sketched into the golden sands that have made this city immortal. Rain forests and granitic cliffs are a testing ground, where distinctions of gender, race or religion cease to exist. The differences between high and low are made level. Kids from the favelas that cling to the hillsides come down into the city, losing themselves among the upper-crust bourgeoisie fwell-heeled from Ipanema and Leblon. A surfboard, a soccer ball or a skateboard is all it takes to make them indistinguishable. Social background doesn't matter for the players of the Flamengo basketball team portrayed in this picture; difference sit sinks while when the girls from the Brazil national synchronized swimming team, Brazil national champions, float over the twirl in the water. Sports blend favela boys in love with football, bikers rolling down the seaside and surfers resting on the beach, as those shown in these images. Call it the miracle of motion – motion that changes perspectives and revolutionizes viewpoints, as in these photos, which provide a portrait of a city and its inhabitants as they have never been seen before.
