As the city of Hong Kong is visually vibrant and breathtaking, this is not surprising. But behind the bright lights lies a quiet and mellow Hong Kong. This book captures the solitude and peacefulness in some of the busiest and most populous parts of the city.
This title features text in English & Chinese. Most photography books about Hong Kong display the splendour of the city in all its vibrant, vivid colour. As the city of Hong Kong is visually vibrant and breathtaking, this is not surprising. But behind the bright lights lies a quiet and mellow Hong Kong, one that is not always apparent to the first-time visitor but nonetheless exists if one seeks it out. Photographed in black-and-white, this book captures the solitude and peacefulness in some of the busiest and most populous parts of the city. These images take you on a journey through some of the city’s most recognisable streets and onboard its most popular modes of transportation – but in a way, you have never experienced before.
