Photographer's Note

During my short visit in Hong Kong I visited the Hong Kong suburb of Sha Tin. Similar high-rise appartment buildings could be seen as far as the Shing Mun River Channel goes. Most of them in the same concrete grey color.

These appartment blocks litteraly house millions of the Hong Kong inhabitants. If it is the place of their dreams to live in, probably not. Can they afford something bigger and more luxurious, probably not either.

It is a situation which many of us Europeans are not used to, a very high density high-rise build up living area. That is exactly why I wanted to go Hong Kong and to the suburbs of Hong Kong, to see the difference with my own eyes. I did not really have the time to walk through the Sha Tin suburb but will definately do so next time visit a similar place.
