Hong Kong – Tea and the Gang

Hong Kong


Today we are taken back to Asia and to the amazing city of Hong Kong, by extremely talented photographer derryainsworth

For me, Hong Kong is such an interesting place to photograph, there are huge disparities between big and small, rich and poor, light and dark. Each district has its own character but overall they share the same sense of epic scale. My photos try to emphasise that overwhelming feeling of how tiny you feel within the city.

What is your favorite place to have a cup of tea? #teawithaview

Probably somewhere up high, on a roof, away from the hectic streets, with a nice view.

'Residensity' - Hong Kong's living conditions can be surprisingly resourceful given its one of the most densely populated cities in the world.

'Downtown' - The pace of life here is incredible. Full of light, full of colour, full of people and full of dim sum.

'Through The Crack's - Overlooking the skyline, small streets glow like veins in the city.

'Surroundings' - Tightly packed housing estates, filled with coloured, repetitive facades create dynamic surroundings in all parts of Hong Kong.

Club Rhino' - Wan Chai is home to Hong Kong's neon lit red light district, each bar with its own colourful artwork.

'Urban Nature' - The divide between concrete and nature is strikingly clear in this city.

'Slanted' - A distant boat float past the horizon as the sun peers through two densely packed residence buildings.

'Dusk' - Sometimes the only way to escape the noise is to get above it all.

'Switching Lanes' - Streaks of light flow the roads of Kowloon.

'Get High' - A lone tree stretches out to the sky amidst a perimeter of buildings.

'On the Edge' - An overview of the concrete jungle
