The Island is a series of photographs documenting my experience in Hong Kong 2017. In this exhibition I hope to guide viewers through some of the complex layers of Hong Kong's identity, exploring varied depths of its landscape and culture and juxtaposing personified elements with those of anonymity.

The title 'The Island' alludes to the conflicting atmospheres of Hong Kong Island, formed naturally as a lush tropical mountain range yet heavily industrialised and densely inhabited by its soaring population. One can easily become disoriented inside the matrix of skyscrapers with little view of the natural landscape and confusing cultural cues from Hong Kong's Western influence.

This project aims to capture what it's like living in constant negotiation with these elements and the consequences of this daily process on the global city's identity.
