Discover the fashions of this well-dressed city from the vantage point of traffic lights during the city's peak hour. Nothing stops people dead in their tracks better than a red light at a busy junction, which coincidentally creates great photographic opportunities.
I dare say Hong Kong has some of the most fashionable citizens in the world. Perhaps its the cool 18 deg post-winter temperature that necessitates sartorial layering, but the Hong Kong locals do it with simple ease as opposed to pretentious Singaporeans in December (yours truly, especially).
This series of photos were part of an impromptu idea I had while on holiday in the aforementioned fashion-forward city. I planted myself at the busiest traffic junction on Granville Road (arguably the most fashionable street in Tsim Sha Tsui), and shot distinctively well-dressed individuals before, during, and after they crossed the road.
And the best part about shooting from traffic lights? I didn’t have to stop anyone to ask if I could take a photo. The red light already did that for me.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.

Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
