Concrete Living

The Challenge

In mathematical rigor the following pictures show, buildings in abstract representation, in which crowds of people live in a very small space. Confinement, which seems unbearable for Europeans, takes on a different meaning in a country with the population of China. In the smallest of spaces, people laugh and cry, suffer and live. Is it all a question of culture?

Most of the artistic shots for concrete living were taken with a telephoto lens, on a Nikon D800 camera, in Hong Kong & Kowloon, China.

The challenge here was to find an elevated position from which to photograph the architecture. Bonus task: superimposing the different layers of houses in perspective to become a series of images that there were no gaps.
