Hong Kong: Looking Up

VerticalHorizon1 VerticalHorizon2 VerticalHorizon4 VerticalHorizon5 VerticalHorizon7
A series of ‘vertical horizons’ of the Hong Kong sky shot from street level and framed by the city’s skyscrapers from a book by French photographer and graphic artist Romain Jacquet-Lagreze.

By eliminating people from his images, Jacquet-Lagreze has taken away the human qualities that normally define such a largely populated city and turned it into an abstract visual reality. The artist’s bio explains that he uses his camera to illustrate his feelings about Hong Kong, inspired mainly by “the geometry of the urban environment and the vivid lives it shelters.
