Sharon Radisch sends us the first couple of diptych photos from her series on the dichotomies that exist in Hong Kong. These photos are centered around the different windows seen in the countless high rises in the bustling metropolis.
Hong Kong is packed with colorful, tall and tightly arranged apartment buildings. The locals say that when one looks at Hong Kong from afar (i.e. from Victoria Peak), it looks like a city of tightly arranged chopsticks. Each building facade is packed with rows of windows that seem to extend into vertical infinity.
One of my favorite things about Hong Kong is that each tiny window, on each vertically infinite building, has a unique story. Whether it is clothing hung to dry, trinkets or different colored and patterned curtains hanging outside, each window tells a different story and lets the outsider learn a little more about the lives lead on the other side of each window.
