Hong Kong, one of the most crowded cities in the world having a population of over 7.3 million people, according to 2015 census report. The city is not only crowded with people but also it is a home for a cluster of skyscrapers.
The Hong Kong-based photographer Andy Yeung was inspired on seeing the aerial view of the city from the plane while flying back to the city from Europe. And, that’s made to take on this project. Yeung picked up a drone, attached a powerful camera to the drone and started capturing the aerial view of the city.
“Looking down, I saw gazillions of buildings soaring high into the skies. The idea of creating a drone series offering a glimpse into the reality of living in one of the most densely populated areas of the world just sprung to my mind.”
While the photos show Hong Kong’s beauty, Yeung also wanted to convey how the city’s lack of living space affects residents.
Hong Kong is “a great city,” he said, “but lurking beneath the prosperity is a severe housing problem that depresses every dweller in this city living in horrid conditions.”
