i would never look at hongkong the same way again. this shoot made me realize many things and appreciate this country more. i must admit, i don’t really like its chaos or its texture as much as i love the chaos of new york. but this trip with dodo and barbie, plus barbie’s mom and my long-time and trusted team mate nat is very memorable that even how tired we were, it is something that i would like to do again.
dodo and barbie know hongkong just like a tourist guide and even better. dodo, who used to work here as an architect knows a lot about this island, and so is barbie. this is actually where everything started some 15 years ago. yes, you got it right, they got to know each other that long, but part of the 15 years is actually being away from each other. this is where dodo realized that barbie is the one.
editor’s note: there were anti-government rallies all over hongkong during the time of our shoot.
