Rae Lam captures the beauty of light and shadow that falls upon Hong Kong's bustling streets

"This is a series of daily observations I made as I walked along the streets of Hong Kong. Shadows create a whole separate world by tall skyscrapers that overshadow the streets," explains Rae Lam of her series, Lights and Shadows.

Making good use of light wherever possible, the Hong Kong-based artist and street photographer hopes to express a striking juxtapose between the lines and shapes of buildings with the way a shadow might fall upon them.

"I intend to add emotions to my pictures by using strong light and shadow, a specific colour palette as well as visual effects using Adobe Photoshop," Rae adds. Follow more of her work on Instagram at @r_chl.
