British documentary photographer and photojournalist Martin Parr turns his lens on the vibrant metropolis of Hong Kong, where his characteristic take on aspects of modern life continues at times to be both intimate and satirical. This series of images portrays familiar and everyday scenes of leisure, consumption and transit in the city. Food is a central theme, though Parr often seeks out those things which may be curiosities to Westerners. He also has a talent for capturing fleeting moments of simultaneity, wherein individuals, their possessions and actions align in amusing vignettes. His keen and observant eye paints a living portrait of the city, seemingly in a completely new way. Thanks to Gost (London).
