About the artwork

As its remarkable architecture attests, Hong Kong is a city torn between East and West, past and future, traditions and modernity. The beauty of its monochrome horizon inspires Kyle Yu, accentuating the colours, symmetries, and perspectives of the towers of social housing that abound in the city. Representing mosaics, his spectacular visuals draw the spectator’s eye. The photographer’s intention is not to reproduce reality but to play with architectural elements and street scenes to offer a new interpretation of Hong Kong. He uses a variety of elements – from windows to skyscrapers – to identify satisfying motifs within the chaos of the megalopolis. He then reworks his images in postproduction, always careful to keep the horizontal and vertical lines of his images as straight as possible. All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking - Friedrich Nietzsche was taken on 12 October 2017, while a person was crossing a very stylised pedestrian crossing in the Central district.

“Hong Kong manque beaucoup d’espace, je suppose que j’essaie de le représenter, tout en créant un peu d’espace au travers de mes photos.”
