Hong Kong is known as the metropolis where East meets West, with an expansive skyline and being one of the most densely populated areas in the world. The focus is certainly on the famous harbour, the bubbly areas of Kowloon and Hong Kong. Rarely do we see the other side of Hong Kong that is slower paced, serene and where time looks to have stood still. I am talking about the village life that is seen outside of the city area.
My parents were born in Hong Kong, so I come back to my roots every couple of years. During my visit in December 2013, I decided to shoot series of photographs that shows a different side of Hong Kong. Here are the results in this photographic documentary titled ‘The Other Side of Hong Kong: Village Life / 香港的另一面 : 鄉村生活’. I’m happy with the results I got from the short stay. Nevertheless, I look forward to expand on the theme on my next visit.
