Geometric Hong Kong by Jason Au
Geometric Hong Kong is a black-and-white street photography series that depicts my creative vision of my hometown. It comes with a fine art aesthetic and the compositional approach of isolating urban subjects, geometric elements and forms from the chaotic urban environment of Hong Kong.
This series portrays the way of life for different urban characters in the context of their surrounding geometric environment – all captured from mundane everyday scenes, with fleeting moments seized from near and far. The minimalist approach seemingly contrasts with the maximalism of the dense Hong Kong cityscape, famously known as a concrete jungle.
These subjects look trapped and lost inside an artificial geometric labyrinth without realising it. Perhaps this series is also a metaphorical view of urbanity and the hectic contemporary way of life in a metropolis like Hong Kong.
