Peter Bialobrzeski‘s Paradise Now. His acclaimed NeonTigers is also worth a look if you’re not familiar with it.

Paradise Now finds the photographer hunting for remnants of nature on the periphery of Asian cities, under the artificial suns of sodium lamps, automobile headlights and illuminated skyscrapers. Taken between October 2007 and March 2008 in Hanoi, Jakarta, Singapore, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, these images celebrate surviving outcrops of greenery as tokens of hope, even as they are threatened and encroached upon by urban expansion and its attendant halo of ominous light.

Also, don’t miss the 2007 interview with Bialobrzeski and Joerg Colberg.
