Alone, Together

Alone, Together is a project that was started during my trip back home to Hong Kong in 2014, and what might have been my last trip back home for some time. I grew up in Hong Kong, and saw it change into the city it is today, I saw it reclaim land from the sea, and create more in the mountain side.

The surrounding environment was disappearing as fast as buildings were being constructed. I tried to show the balance between a concrete jungle, and the jungle that Hong Kong was before it was populated. It’s a project full of quiet moments, scenes that tourists, and even locals might pass over. At times the city and nature mesh well together, other times it is clear that they are two separate characters fighting for dominance.
