Parisian photographer Karl Hab releases his fourth limited edition photo-book, titled 24H HONG KONG.
Conceived as a follow-up to the previously-released 24H LOS ANGELES, 24H HONG KONG offers a stark contrast to both cities’ vastly different cultures and landscapes, and is the second instalment of Karl’s ongoing city series project that he plans to expand throughout his career.
Taking inspiration from this cross-cultural hub, 24H HONG KONG puts a larger focus on human and the daily routines of locals from the ground to the sky, capturing the artist’s love for life in Asia’s World City which he considers his second home.
With an introduction written by renowned graffiti artist Futura 2000, this limited edition book features original photographs of distinct Hong Kong scenery from red Island Taxis, neon signs and pastel basketball courts to modern cityscapes and vacant MTR stations.
The book also respects the chromatic order, from day to night like my previous project 24H LOS ANGELES,
Extracts of the book
The original idea has changed through the years in order to only show a pure vision of cities during a shorten time of 24 hours.
As for the first Los Angeles book, there is also the GPS coordinates as well as information representing the captions of some photographs.
