The French photographer and graphic artist Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze created Vertical Horizon as a photographic journey between the buildings of Hong Kong.
The project is “a deep immersion into the city’s thick atmospheres and a visual record of its wildly diverse built environment.
This book is like a contemplative dive into the raw nature of Hong Kong and an expression of its vertical élan.”
Jacquet-Lagreze is most inspired by the “geometry of the urban environment and the vivid lives it shelters”.
“You can’t really appreciate a towering city structure until you’ve craned your neck up the length of its spine, admiring the way its reflective edges seem to scrape the sky,” Jacquet-Lagrèze told the Daily Mail.
