The Territories

The Territories, shot over three annual visits to the New Territories—a quieter area of the greater Hong Kong region— is inspired by the souvenir calendars filled with glossy stock photos of the city’s most famous landmarks, that her aunt gifted over the years of her childhood.

The calendars depicted picture-perfect landscapes of Victoria Harbour and the seaside tourist towns of Stanley and Repulse Bay. The Territories, on the other hand, serves as a capsule view of the Chinese-held territory and offers an alternative view of Hong Kong and the distinct elements that separate it from mainland China.
