Beneath Hong Kong’s neon surface is a grittier side.
Deserted schools. Decayed mansions. Abandoned village homes.
Many are earmarked for demolition. But before parts of the city’s history are lost forever, camera-wielding urban explorers are documenting them.
“From grand Hakka mansions to century-old European villas, gorgeous heritage buildings in Hong Kong are being bulldozed and redeveloped into shopping malls and high-rise luxury apartments as we speak,” says photographer Pit-hing Yang (P.H. Yang).
To bring these images to a wider audience, Yang has organised a photo exhibition in Admiralty, from August 17 to 29 (free admission).
