Hong Kong Is a City of Contrasts

Whoever puts one’s feet on the leased land of Hong Kong these days finds his or her shoes sinking into the concrete of Asia’s world city. Every next step is a little stickier, slower than the previous one, every breath is a little less deep, every thought is a little...

Va Disparaître / Markets of Hong Kong

This post is about the Fabric Market, a secluded corner in Sham Shui Po, which is going to be demolished in a matter of weeks or even days. This recent photo was aged on purpose, as this is what the Fabric Market will soon become – another forgotten memory, a page in...

Ballerinas

Almost everything that you see in people comes and goes unsaid. Words only make the introduction, the rest is done by God. We are all the same and we are all so inconceivably different. Born, touched, loved, excited, tired, deceased ̶ we are all engaged into this...

Vertigo

Tell me what it is to be tired. Being virtually in Macau, spiritually in Eden and mentally absent, physically however I remained in Hong Kong. Sometimes the physics matters. The state of being present at three different places at the same time is dizzy-giddy-swimming....

Ultimate Moving

In the meantime, the author Kirill Voloshin is on the move, as is his family, his belongings, his thoughts and his means of communication. Having left Hong Kong, he is heading towards Nairobi, Kenya. And yes, it is a long way. "There is always a story to tell", says...

Cross-Cultural Aesthetic of Macau

Macau by all means is a great place to visit. Similar to Hong Kong, but in its own charming manner, it really is a soup of different cultures, times, styles, religions, contrasts, colours. A kind of soup you'd love to taste occasionally but would hardly consume daily....

See for Yourself

Move a few steps to the left, now take one step forward, shift right a tiny bit, calm your breath and look down. Can you see him? Meet Nick! Blue on the red. Jump up Nick, shake yourself, walk three steps to the East, shake yourself again, rush through the door and...

Secret Adventures of Dragon Ming

I will tell you a short and true story about Dragon Ming and his secret adventures that happened on the night of September 14 somewhere over Hong Kong.   Before doing anything else, on the night of September 14 Dragon Ming put all tired people to sleep. “They deserve...

Facets

A photographer is always free to lead viewer’s admiring eyes towards beautiful faces. The beauty never gets old. And then the very same insane photographer can unveil the seamy undersides. Or can he? No ethics...

Freshman

Man’s thoughts are as wild as an untamed filly. A couple of months ago a weird idea entered my mind and op la! here I am. An anxious freshman, a non-degree student at SCAD Hong Kong, squeezing my camera and about to start a new way up. This is the travel that made me...

A Milestone

I am spending days walking along the fence–hitting rocks, trampling grapes, emptying pockets, scratching my jacket. Here I am, the beholder of true limitation, neither small enough to sneak through, nor tall enough to step over. I can pick a stick and press it along...

Encapsulation

Rumors are, there is always something present in the air of Hong Kong. Dust, mist, anxiety, pollution, hope, oxygen, airplanes, thunder, kites, hawks, drones, laser beams are drilling through the clouds and leave almost no room for clarity, horizon and breath. I once...

Multi-Storey

Same as people, with their social masks and ever rich inner world, Hong Kong Island is made of layers. Sandwiched between deep tunnels of MTR (local metro) and the Peak villas, Hong Kong Island is packed with levels, floors, double-deckers, trees looking up,...
