Flow of LightsAbout this photograph
As a high-density city, Hong Kong's circulation is among the most busy in the world. And this is even more intensified by the big amount of double-deck buses and trams that run constantly all over the city. Nicolas likes to play here with the reflection of the neon signs on the busy traffic of the city. Thanks to a long-exposure shot the circulation becomes like a flow of lights colored by the several lights of the shop's signs. It is also for him a good way to illustrate the high activity of Mong Kok which is the most densely populated district in the worldRead more Read less

Born in Paris in 1987, Nicolas Jacquet has been fascinated by visual art since its young age. Originally more interested in drawing and painting, his passion evolved to photography after his arrival in Hong Kong in 2009. He felt that the city's vibrancy was strong enough to be seen as a giant artwork. Through photography, Nicolas is trying is best to express his vision of this city, rich in colors and lights. He particularly loves the urban scenery that express how vivid and bustling the street life can be in Hong Kong.
