Hong Kong Red by Ali G

Hong Kong: a vibrant, dynamic and fast-paced metropolis where East meets West. My love affair with this city started long before I even stepped foot on its soil!

My best friend, a Hong Kong descendant, would pass every summer of his teenage years here visiting family. Not only did he bring back amazing tales and images of food, technology and the city’s immaculate architecture, but he planted a seed that would bud years later as I looked to Asia for work.

Upon landing in Asia’s world city, I was immediately captivated by the iconic red taxis whizzing through the narrow roads, engulfed in a sea of neon signs and sky scrapers. 20 years on, it is still magical and my fascination for this city continues to grow!

Why Red? The color red symbolizes passion, a characteristic rooted deeply in my photography and the love I have for the city of Hong Kong. Furthermore, it is considered to be a lucky color in Chinese culture, in addition to being the prominent color of Hong Kong’s flag.

This timeless collection of 1/1 photographs has taken 4 years to create, and it is my first NFT collection.
