CHOPSTICK STORIES ︎ HONG KONG


In 2015 I embarked on what was to be the most amazing adventure as a young design studentand the opportunity to go to the great metaphorical city of Hong Kong. I applied and was awarded asix month exchange programmeplacement at the Hong Kong Poly U Technical University to complete my minor in the Department of Environmental Design.

What a culture shock this was!Before I knew it I was tenchopsticksdeep in the HK lifestyleand eating my noodles on the street corners and chilling in food courts just like all thelocals.

During my long stay I lived in a hostel in the area“ShamShui Po”whichwas a bit of a rougharea,but the rent was cheap and I really wanted to put myself in the middle of all it.And believe me I saw some bizarrethings. like guys selling super-sizeTVsout the backsof vans and people gambling for money on the streets.

I was fascinated by the culture and the way of life in HK. I started documenting my daily experiences and myfirst project was borncalled“CHOPSTICKSTORIES”.  What I would do wastakephotos of the placeswhere I had my dinner and write down what I experienced:-the noise,the locals,the small talk,the chats with the employeesand if I was lucky enough I’d say“Hi”to the chef in the kitchen and thank him for the meal. I kept ondocumenting and I made a collection of street photography and films.






“CHOPSTICK STORIES”
A collection of Stories, Memories and Photography.
