New, 1 comment

Doing his part to continue the world's fascination with Hong Kong's ultra-dense living conditions—the kind that begets both architectural horrors and white-hot real estate markets—French photographer and graphic artist Romain Jacquet-Lagreze takes photos of the rather photogenic region, snapping from the ground geometric, claustrophic shots of residential towers. Inspired by what he calls Hong Kong's "race to the sky," Jacquet-Lagreze says his Vertical Horizon is "a contemplative dive into the raw nature of Hong Kong and an expression of its vertical élan."
