What We Have Built

When travelling in Hong Kong, I found the buildings to be imposing, unlike what I had witnessed before, they did not seem to fit in with the natural space that filled the city itself. This photograph was taken under the framework of me, trying to make sense of why a city would build so much. Upon taking it, I realized that there is beauty in what I had deemed as what was an absolute disaster of a built environment.
