Vertical Horizon by Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze
As the city grows around him, photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze trains his lens on the upward mobility of Hong Kong’s architecture. Jacquet-Lagrèze has produced a 160-page photo book documenting the strange and often symmetrical patterns found in Hong Kong’s rise. From the organically-growing residential tenements to the steel-and-glass commercial superstructures, the figurative flora and fauna of urban evolution are this photographer’s muse. See the full set of Jacquet-Lagrèze’s photographs in his book, available from AO The Bookstore for $36 USD after currency exchange.
