HONG KONG: A Many Splendoured City
No other landscape has been so drilled, dredged, transplanted and utterly transformed as that of Hong Kong. Impatient traffic, chic shopping malls and bustling streets contrast with an often-tranquil hinterland and an older place of soot-blackened temples, traditional markets and colonial-era museums. Yet Hong Kong remains – at one and the same time – tenaciously traditional and aggressively modern. This volume of striking, astutely observed photography, offers a wealth of insights into this many splendoured city.
