"Some Near. Some Far has been a labour of love, and not only a journey through Hong Kong, but a journey of self-reflection. Here is a collection of film photographs taken in Hong Kong between 2014 and 2018. It’s a story about contrasts, and a tribute to the underdog. It’s about forgotten things and forgotten people. It’s early mornings, late nights and everything in-between. It’s mostly colour and a bit of black and white.

It’s pure and honest Hong Kong."

Biography:

I am a South African photographer based in Hong Kong. 

I gravitate towards the streets, the mundane, and the people who inhabit this collective space. Sometimes comedic, with a hint of philosophical and existential leanings; I try to capture the people and things in this world who are trying to make sense of it all - trying to create purpose in a seemingly purposeless reality.

It's ironic then, that I seek to portray the everyday with a sense of reverence, hoping to find guidance for myself, and perhaps others.

All photos are shot on 35mm film.
