Real-Life Hong Kong Cinema

Living between two worlds; that's how I felt growing up. My parents are immigrants from Hong Kong who came to the states to attend university. Though I was born in New York, I've found myself caught between two vastly different cultures. The majority of my family still lives in Hong Kong, and I have been back to visit over twenty times. But every time I return to the states, my trips feel like a dream.

I grew up watching old Hong Kong movies with my cousin, and sometimes those films still have an influence on how I see Hong Kong through a camera—a series of beautiful still images. Neon-filled and completely chaotic with an ancient foundation of my family's heritage and traditions.

The following photos were taken on my most recent trip to Hong Kong last year.
