Skyscrapers may be one of Hong Kong's signature sights. With limited land, the only place to build is up. Ajay Malghan, a photographer whose just completed his Master of Fine Arts in Hong Kong, has a series of photographs that present the architecture found in this metropolis.
Hong Kong, with 7 million inhabitants, has to satisfy the need for living-space by building skyscrapers. This special feature has grabbed the attention of Ajay Malghan. His photo series, “Vertical Density”, is regarded as a way to reflect the living standards in Hong Kong. With his rich scope acquired through traveling the world when he was young, a unique way of presenting the buildings is created through his photography.
With the use of a film-camera and the mode of multiple exposure, a special visual effect, which highlights the most significant part of Hong Kong’s modern architecture, is created. The high density of the buildings, as well as the busy atmosphere of the city, is conveyed through the subject placement and overlap in the photographs.
Do you want to whet your appetite by trying your hand at multiple exposures after witnessing Malghan’s works? Anyone of us can do it, I assure you! Some of our Lomographers also photograph buildings with a similar approach to Maighan! Let’s check them out!
Experience how interesting multiple exposures can be! The picture may turn out like what you’d envisioned before snapping it, or it may not – who knows! But that’s what motivates us to keep on trying!
So, live by the tenent of “welcoming the unexpected”!
