Self-Taught Chinese Street Photographer Takes China By Storm With His Perfectly Timed Photos

Street photography requires a knack for catching quirky and unexpected details that others might miss, and this is a talent that self-taught Chinese street photographer Tao Liu has in spades. As a water meter reader in the city of Haifei, he spends his days on the streets, where he can capture warm, unexpected and sometimes funny moments.

Liu’s hobby began three years ago when he bought a Fujifilm X100 and started shooting during his commutes and lunch breaks. He looked up videos by other photographers and read books to improve his art.

His work went viral in China towards the end of 2014 and is now spreading all over the world, so check out what all the fuss is about!
