One day out shooting some film with a friend, we came across this scene. It's a popular place to make photos since there is this urban mural on the wall that looks like the typical old-school row homes in old Hong Kong. I actually made about 5-6 images of this scene but this one worked the best since all of the people were positioned well with minimal overlap.
This is what I look for in an image. It's completely candid although arguably, candid on the street doesn't exist in this day and age. George Orwell was right, Big Brother is always watching.
Street photography for me is a type of open-eyed meditation. I regularly wonder the city’s neighbourhoods looking for interesting characters in front of interesting backdrops and try to connect the two in a story telling fashion. Did this image succeed in that mission? That’s for the viewer to decide.
