Split Seconds : Hong Kong
by Abe Kogan and Paul Zimmerman and Wendy Kwok


Overview -
The third in the Split Seconds series featuring evocative black-and-white photography that captures the timeless beauty of iconic cities

Hong Kong provides a stunning backdrop for Abe Kogan's skillfully rendered black-and-white photography. The third in the Split Seconds series, following Havana and Florence, Hong Kong explores the city famous for its dense urbanism and high-rise marvels. The towering obelisks and repetitive facades of the modern megacity stand in stark contrast to its complex cultural roots--a city born of compromise between Chinese tradition and British influence. Kogan's strikingly evocative images showcase this intersection of influence with intimate portraits of bustling street life, iconic skylines, claustrophobic residential areas, maritime hubs, rugged coastline, and the parks and public spaces that provide a respite from the unrelenting vigor of the city.
