Forever cramped in Hong Kong


 

 

Occupying an area of approximately 1100 square kilometers, and inhabited by 7 million dwellers, the population density, if flattened, would not have turned Hong Kong into such a sprawling, vertically inclined uniformity. But only one-third of it is tenable for urban development (and little less than 7% of which for housing development), therefore likening it into a massive megalopolis inhabited by over 100,000 men each sq km. Here, amid the ant-like mecca, a German photographer examines what it means of living in Hong Kong, a living embodiment of global capitalism, and a resisting experiment of what ‘social inequality’ is truly defined.
