Artist Statement

Frenetic City examines the intensity and chaotic environment in one of the most densely populated cities in the world, Hong Kong.

With a population of over 7 million but less than 25% of its land developed, it is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. When I first landed, I was immediately confronted by a society that is in fierce competition for physical and mental space. I decided to capture and re-create the tension and chaos that I experienced in photographic form, using multiple exposures on B&W negatives.

The creation of each photograph requires me to be fixed at a specific location from between 5 to 7 hours per session. Through the viewfinder of an old Hasselblad, I created each photograph by overlapping selected individuals or groups of people within the 6 x 6 frame.

The resulting photograph is not of a singular moment in time, but a multitude of moments in time captured in a single frame.

Selected photographs from this project have been exhibited internationally, including KG+(Kyoto, Japan), Lishui International Photography Festival(China), The Fence(USA), Mt. Rokko International Photography Festival(Kobe, Japan), amongst others.

The limited edition monograph (300 copies), produced in Duotone, offset printing, consists of elaborated photographs of overpopulated city landscapes, depicting density, loneliness and lost of identity, created in the streets of Hong Kong from 2014 to 2019.
