kaleidoscopic DOORWAY

Stumbled across this beauty whilst exploring the alleyways of Yau Ma Tei was immediately struck by its kaleidoscope of colour, texture and social commentary.

The daylight was just fading from the day… this doorway using it’s traditional red fluorescent light to advertising “massage services”, the glow of the flourescent lighting used in the corridor gets colder (bluer) as one traverses the space towards the stairs, creating a delicious & full spectrum. The surface of the walls adding a multi layered textural element.

Part of Hong Kong’s image is intertwined with these vibrant neon soaked colour palettes giving these traditional services that cinematic futuristic dystopian bent that have given the world motifs seen in such films as “Blade Runner” and Wong Kar Wai’s classic “in the mood for love”. These romanticised scenes are a thin veneer to the actual realities/hardships of the communities living in this guilded cityscape. Giving space to the viewer to insert their own backstories to the scene prompted by the initial awareness of the potential services on offer.

SHAM SHUI PO RENAISSANCE

The vibrant neighbourhood of Sham Shui Po has always be a target for my wanderings with its multicultural streets illustrating the diversity of population that gives supercharged fuel to the engine room that is Hong Kong.

Looking to capture the scene of the quintessential & traditional domestic goods store that are found across Hong Kong’s heritage districts, the shop that literally sells everything from rat traps to dim sum baskets. The cacophony of goods make for a riot of texture & Colour on display, the upper floors judging by the amount of air conditioning units must be subdivided units aka “coffin homes” the patina of the exterior paint shows decades of heat and sun exposure.

The people in the shot lead the viewer to wonder what the non verbal interactions are, from the gas delivery man’s eye contact with the spectator bottom left, to the quaffed group of men preparing coals for a shisha pipe, the eye of the viewer being lead to very back of the shop where more pockets of trading is in full swing.

The colours were simplified to become a more duotone image triggering those romantic vibrant neon city vibes and to reduce the noise of colours within the original image. This treatment focuses the eye on the hero of the scene the front of the traditional home goods shop.

Ascending Dragon Boat Head
Edition: 2/5
Size 24x36 inches
Date Shot: 27th January 2021
Location: Fuk Tak Temple, Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong

Description:
The dragon boat head is resting in an individual enclosure within the Fuk Tak Temple complex in Shau Kei Wan. Dragon boat heads are considered sacred and celestial beings hence the ceremony around the dotting of the eyes preceding Dragon Boat race day, also leading to this example being dutifully cared for during its pass from this plain to the next. 

The origins of the Dragon Boat Festival can be found in several stories. The most famous are about Qu Yuan, China’s first patriotic writer and Wu Zixu, a once-loyal advisor to the King Fuchai. Before Qu Yuan waded in the Miluo River and drowned himself, he wrote a famous lyrical poem 离骚 Li Sao (“Sorrow in Estrangement”).


Poem calligraphy by local artist Grand Master Tso.

Cassia and pepper of the mountain-side , with melilotus white in clusters vied.
杂申椒与菌桂兮,岂维纫夫蕙芷!

The way was long, and wrapped in gloom did seem, as I urged on to seek my vanished dream.
路漫漫其修远兮,吾将上下而求索。

Long did I sigh and wipe away my tears, to see my people bowed by griefs and fears.
长太息以掩涕兮,哀民生之多艰。

But since my heart did love such purity, I’d not regret a thousand deaths to die.
亦余心之所善兮,虽九死其犹未悔。

Without delay the sun and moon sped fast, in swift succession spring and autumn passed;
日月忽其不淹兮,春与秋其代序。
