32-year old Tao Liu works as a water meter reader for the Hefei Water Supply Company. He travels up and down the city on his motorbike and into streets and alleys to knock on doors and write down numbers. His job is mechanical and tedious, but it also allows him to visit every nook and corner of the city. Taking advantage of the nature of the job, Liu started taking photos, but unlike your average street photographer, Liu’s photos are laced with black humor - a glamorous girl on a poster appears to be kissing (or smelling) the bottom of a casually dressed man as he bends down to pick up something, the shadow of a man perfectly enclosed within a frame and a dog's head appearing to replace a person’s body.
