Street Smarts – Photographer Captures Stunning Photographs of Local Hong Kong Street Scenes

June 27th 2014

Many of the photographers we’ve featured on Localiiz have chosen Hong Kong’s architecture or nature as their muse.

“I try to reveal the beauty of these little moments every day that we do not see because we are too busy with our daily lives,” Emmanuelle told Localiiz. “We are becoming more of an individualist society. We don’t take the time to look around us and don’t see the beauty of these people, or of a tiny street, and a signage panel.”

Emmanuelle chooses to photograph the scenes in black and white, as he says removing colours allows him to highlight other, more important aspects in his photos. There’s no denying that they’re pretty striking. Maybe it’s time to turn Localiiz black and white…?
