Compact City

Entry Description

Hong Kong is the world's most densely populated place and it is my home. The rent is eye-wateringly high, and the space frustratingly small. It has on average 130,000 people squeezed inside. One square kilo meter equivalent to putting about 900 people inside the football pitch. Residents complain of air, noise and light pollution and the overstretched transport network. Although the overcrowding and noise pollution issues, I like Hong Kong. Hong Kong is very efficient. And it is more energy-efficient compared to other cities because we are so compact. So many people are living very closely together sharing public facilities. You can find many shops here that you can't find anywhere else. When you look up at all the skyscrapers and high rise buildings, you might think that most people have a view of the neighbour’s wall or possibly their sitting room but actually a lot of people have views. Whether it’s the million dollar view of the harbour, or a cityscape of twinkling lights at night, the views from buildings in Hong Kong are often amazing.

About Photographer

About me: My name is Andy Yeung and I’m a photographer keen on landscape, architecture and travel photography. A decade has past since I picked up my very first camera in 2005. I'm still in love...with the the creative process in photography. I’m based in Hong Kong from where I travel extensively. For me, travel and photography have always worked in perfect harmony. They go hand in hand. Capturing great moments and transforming what I’ve seen into something new and artistic while strolling through a new city with fresh eyes is a rewarding experience. If we are on the same page, please follow me on Facebook to keep up to date with my recent work. I enjoy working with people who love art and trust me as an artist. Taking projects/assignments seriously, I’m ready to create outstanding visuals with you. Contact me to discuss rates and your photography needs. My photographs are also available for personal use as fine art for interior decoration. About my work: They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Take a look around and you'll see.
