Photographer & filmmaker

“That small alley of undercover shops inside Leishun Court is a visual masterpiece, a total cinematic moment. Fruit stand, old school printer, dai pai dong, car garage, cool menswear stores and lots of bad fluorescent lighting, filled with awesome characters. It’s my idea of heaven, and I always take a walk through there when I need a hit of inspiration. When I first arrived 7 years ago, I liked that CWB had its own personality. It wasn’t really deemed to be cool, and that’s what I liked. It was a neighbourhood where you could go and still get a bit of local Hong Kong without travelling for miles to the outer parts of town. The pace on the footpath has changed. It used to be a casual saunter and now it’s a power walk. And you feel as though you need to wear a ‘look’, rather than just roll out in your t-shirt and unkempt hair.”
