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.

I recently spent a little over a month hotel hopping in Manhattan (March 12th to April 29th) shooting time lapse. These clips were pulled from over an hours worth of footage.

I sought out to capture the electric radiance of Los Angeles at night and paint a portrait of my city.
It took me 6 months of on and off shooting to finish this project.
Shooting time lapses is a labor of love and a study in patience.
This video is dedicated to the memory of my Grandmother.# vimeo.com/27235856 Uploaded 1.9M Plays 16.4K Likes 974 Comments
