  2. Spring 2014 was the best time of my life.

    I spent 35 days exploring 11 different cities in Japan, China and Southeast Asia as a work assignment. I had chance to see new places, meet new people and experience new things I had never done before. This is my visual diary of the journey shot entirely on iPhone 5s.

    Cities featured in film:

    Tokyo
    Nikko
    Osaka
    Ise
    Nagoya
    Kyoto
    Beijing
    Singapore
    Bangkok
    Hanoi
    Hongkong
    Helsinki

    Music: Agnes Obel - Dorian

    Hong Kong is Home.

    I remember when I first arrived in Hong Kong almost a decade ago, I felt like I had walked into an actual movie set. It was a place that I had only seen on TV as a kid, with its strange red taxi’s, odd stop lights and driving on the other side of the road.

    My intent with this project was to illustrate the grandeur of Hong Kong that most people would never get to see. When I had recently watched the movie Oblivion, it had somehow starkly reminded me of Hong Kong, with the feeling of being so insignificantly small -- almost irrelevant to my surroundings. Hong Kong is an unbelievably dense city, where much of the world can be accessed at your fingertips. But in a city where you can access the material world in a matter of seconds, it also has the ability to isolate you from the 8 million people around you as well.

    With this piece, I hope that you are able to engage in this contradiction.
