TITLE: Old Meets New
In an industrial district in Hong Kong surrounded by a mix of old and new developments, the shot was taken to highlight a contrasting co-existence of a new skyscraper’s stylishly designed front entrance and an old industrial complex with myriads of air conditioners, pipes, wires mounted on its wall. The shadow and light accentuated the overall monochromic effect of the city’s architecture.
