The Skyline From Below


In his series “Verical Horizon,” photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagreze captures upward-looking views of Hong Kong skyscrapers:

[Jacquet-Lagreze‘s] interest in photography began during his period of working in Los Angeles and Tokyo, and subsequently blossomed into a passion after his arrival in Hong Kong. Stunned by its architectural “race to the sky”, he felt the need to use his camera to share his feelings about the city. The geometry of the urban environment and the vivid lives it shelters are the aspects of Hong Kong that inspire him most.
