“From a photography point of view, the topography of Hong Kong is unique,” Edward Barnieh explains. “It creates opportunities to shoot urban landscapes from some incredible angles. One of the most amazing things about this city is the cultures of east and west not just co-existing, but mixing and creating an environment that you will struggle to find anywhere else in the world.”
Edward became interested in photography at an early age, and has since embraced how the medium enables him to not only meet an array of creative people, but also to think differently. In terms of subject matter, he’s also quick to point out that Hong Kong offers ample diversity, no matter the time of day or year.
“When I arrived here, I was in awe of the architecture,” he says, “but over time I have come to appreciate every detail of this city. As a result, my style is constantly evolving and I’m always trying new things, as well as honing my landscape photography. Any one of the mountains that surround the city are great to shoot from,” Edward continues, “and depending on the weather, they can offer anything from an amazing sunrise to ethereal fog.”
