Walled City: Andy Yeung captures an aerial view of a "claustrophobic" Hong Kong

in Inspiration / Travel

When you consider this beautiful series of aerial shots by photographer Andy Yeung – featured previously – it really hits home how densely populated some parts of Hong Kong have become. Entitled Walled City, the stunning images highlight the plight of claustrophobic living from a new perspective.

"The Kowloon Walled City was once the densest place on Earth. Hundreds of houses stacked on top of each other enclosed in the centre of the structure," says Andy. "Many didn’t have access to air or open space. This notorious city was finally demolished in 1990s. However, if you look hard enough, you will notice that the city is not dead.

"Part of it still exists in many of the current high density housing apartments where the only view out the window is neighbour’s. I hope this series can get people to think about claustrophobic living in Hong Kong from a new perspective."
