I was recently hired by the Hong Kong Tourism Board to photograph with dancer Brittany Cavaco for a campaign promoting different local arts venues. It took us about 20 hours of flight to land in Hong Kong. Sleep deprived, I thought my mind was playing tricks on me. The sights, the sounds, the smells, the textures…everything felt magnified…Almost like tripping on shrooms(tho I wouldn’t really know, mom). I told myself it’s just the jet lag talking. Yet, a few days after settling in, I still felt extremely compelled and amazed by what I was experiencing. Hong Kong could be felt by all my five senses, almost simultaneously. It was overwhelming and beautiful.
