After hours: HONG KONG

After Hours is a portrait of Hong Kong at night. This vertical metropolis is one of the most densely populated cities in the world.

 

A circuitboard of skyscrapers and neon infrastructure, Hong Kong’s construction is a project without an end in sight.

Hong Kong pulses with life as it expands horizontally whilst compressing vertically.

Its inhabitants shape the city as the city simultaneously shapes its inhabitants. 

A melting pot of culture and architectural styles, Hong Kong has experienced a complex political history and rapid population growth.

 

This series aims to capture the sense of scale and atmosphere of Hong Kong.

 

AREA 51

I photographed the atmosphere and culture around Area 51, a highly secretive and much talked-about US airforce institution located in the desert of Nevada.

 

During the time of this story in late 2019 there was a lot of hype generated over the social-media fuelled plan to ‘Storm Area 51’. 

I met with local business owners and residents living in the vicinity and asked them about their everyday lives and extraterrestrial experiences.

 

Their feedback inspired me to make photographs that captured the surreal mood and uncanny aura of the region.

ZESTAFONI

The town of Zestafoni in the former Soviet country of Georgia is home to a Ferroalloy Plant that produces manganese alloys used to strengthen steel.

Founded in 1933 by the famous Georgian scientist Giorgi Nikoladze, the facility continues to operate 24 hours a day,

7 days a week.

Raw manganese ore is transported to Zestafoni by train from mines in the nearby Chiatura region.

The final product is shipped to steel factories in other countries around the world.

I photographed the factory and witnessed the working process of the employees, many whom have worked in this same factory for over 35 years.

WESTERN CANADA

The Pacific Northwest of Canada is home to some of the world's most impressive and striking ecosystems and natural landscapes. From the coastal regions of Vancouver Island, the temperate rainforests of the mainland, and the dramatic peaks of the Rocky Mountains, this body of work is a collection of photographs made in the region.

ANOTHER TIME

Another Time is an ongoing collection of images made in various abandoned and forgotten spaces around the world. In many cases these structures were once ornate facilities, ranging from religious and ceremonial to industrial and residential buildings.

 

The markers of time are seen not only in architectural decay and deterioration of the buildings themselves, but also in the re-emergence of plant life slowly reclaiming the land.
