More information about the artist:
Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze is a French graphic artist with a Masters in multimedia and art from East Paris University. His 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.
He is well known for his photography series The Blue Moment and Vertical Horizon and has received attention from both local and international press such as SCMP (HK), Herald Tribune (US), National Geographic, Lonely Planet (HK), El Pais (Spain), Figaro (France), Huffinton Post (US), The Guardian (UK), Stern (Germany) and many more….
