Hong Kong is one of the cities with highest density and most expensive living space in the world, besides New York, London and Tokyo. Besides my other cityscape photography series, this series is focused on the living space of Hong Kong. I started the series with the public housing, which built and provided by the government. Public housing supposed to be higher density between another buildings; also smaller space within one apartment than private housing, but the fact is not. Private housing is getting higher and higher building density, at the same time the market price is getting higher. Turns out the market leads to the citizen to spend more money on smaller living space (e.g. 1sq. feet costs HK$10000+).
Inside this series, you can see the living environment is intensive, you can’t see any space between each other. People spent millions of dollars for such a high-density area to live in, can’t imagine how the pressure the people would be?
