Hong Kong Waters
is the latest project by Berlin-based artist Andreas Müller-Pohle. Over a period of two years, he photographed the Asian megacity as seen from the perspective of the water – half below, half above the water’s surface – thus creating a new, hitherto unseen image of Hong Kong. Hong Kong is known for its hyper-dense high-rise architecture, but no less characteristic of the city are its various water landscapes, including 700 kilometers of coastline, 260 islands and countless rivers, canals, reservoirs and waterfalls. Hong Kong Waters brings together these two dimensions of the city: its vertical urbanity and its horizontal alignment to the water. Co-produced with Asia One Books, the publication features 63 photographs that form part of this unusual city portrait, which also includes videos and a soundtrack.
