Hong Kong, 2016. Constructions of tomorrow sometimes unapologetically
replace the foundations of yesterday. With full confidence on urban
development without a speed limit, can we build a future alongside
historical legacy? As Feng Shui wisdom recommends, accept the Past,
embrace the Future, and live in the Present.

As a visual artist and photographer, my inspiration is intimately connected to my passion for travel. I am lucky to have lived internationally and discovered diverse cultures. This has shaped my photographic expression to an unexpected paradox: the exploration of contrasts between the gentle and abstract beauty lying in Nature, compared to rich and overloaded urban environments.
