The Eye of the Tiger

Hong Kong 

The Eye of the Tiger is a street photography work.

The main location of this project is Kowloon City District in Hong Kong, a metropolis considered one of the four Asian tigers due to its growing economy and significant financial centres. Although the city has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world, it has severe income inequality.

 

Overpopulation and the lack of available space restricted development to high-density residential tenements and commercial complexes packed closely together on buildable land.

I’ve focused my camera on the architecture of such crowded living space and the people that work and live their lives in the shadow of the high-rise buildings. Hong Kong is a cosmopolitan and multicultural city where West meets East and where political and social issues shape its identity.
