You could easily forget about Hong Kong's lush, green forests, tranquil fishing villages, and sandy beaches after watching this moody new video from talented 23-year-old SCAD student Solomon Wong
Inspired by the work of legendary German photographer Michael Wolf
and his famous Hong Hong series Architecture of Density
, the visual effects student set off with his Canon C100 and 5D to capture the compact living environment in our city's concrete jungle. Set to a foreboding score, which mixes classical music with tribal drums, the video certainly creates the sense of urban chaos in our hectic city.
"I was raised in Hong Kong and I saw the series of photos made by Michael Wolf about the dense architecture in Hong Kong," Wong tells us. "I have a deep feeling about how crowded the city has become these days, which is why I decided to make this video."
Anyone feeling a bit claustrophobic? Maybe it's time to hit the beach!
