Godzilla versus the Smog Monster was one of my favourite Japanese movies, made way back in 1971, when smog was a growing concern in all the industrialized countries.
Now the western world has more or less cleaned up its act but smog now blankets large portions of Asia in rather horrific concentrations.
Smog obscures Hong Kong’s harbour in 2007. I’ve read that they have since put up billboards along the harbour walkway showing the way the view looks on the rare occurence of a clear day.
In Thailand in 2014 the smog was so thick you couldn’t see the billboard. I used the smoggy sun from a Thailand photo together with some scratched paint from a Thai wall and an out-of-focus photo of smoky fireworks to form this Bangkok smog abstract.
