Kino Koike Photography Exhibition “ A street and the atmosphere – Hong Kong ”
Thu 18:00～22:30 Fri 18:00～22:30
Sat 15:00～22:30 Sun 12:00～18:00(last day17:00)
Very high buildings cover the sky, there are many luxury brands and high-tech shops in the street, and the people are overflowing. Actually, I don’t like big city, but… Hong Kong attracts me. Because I feel a temperature and a warmth of the people and the place. Aged building, old restaurant, huminity, fishy smell, sound of car horn, crowd and noisy voice… even these are interesting.
The city has kept their unique culture and the values while being swayed by the tough situation of each era. I think I should express the city with my photography.
