Sometimes the images worth capturing the most are the ones that illustrate the poetry of everyday life. But you don't have to tell that to self-taught Chinese photographer Tao Liu, who has become famous for his offbeat shots of daily life in Hefei. 

The story of Tao Liu's journey to being a celebrated street photographer is pretty remarkable. Tao works a day job as a water-meter reader but spends hours studying the art of photography, even driving anywhere he can to get his hands on books about the art of taking pictures. 

And his work has undoubtedly paid off, as many of his quirky street photos have gone viral and earned him critical acclaim in the photography world.
