Hong Kong is the most familiar place for you and me, we almost spend every day to live at this tiny place with fast-paced life. With the bustle spirit of Hong Kong people, it is difficult for them to recognize each district, each street and each corner of the city. Same as a busy Hong Kong people, Mark is even busier than most of us that he is willing to spend more time to discover the specialty of Hong Kong, “ This photo album aims to allow more people to recognize the neglected beauty of Hong Kong. As a local person, I will use the angle of the enjoyment of Hong Kong lifestyle to capture her multiple faces. The interesting thing is everyone feels familiar with the scenes and even see them with many times. In order to show these familiar scenes with a unique feeling is the main message I want to demonstrate on this photobook.”
Mark has been to different places in terms of work and travel, but Hong Kong is still his most favourable place. As the advantages of her vibrant, diversed and high-efficient spirits are irreplaceable by other places, “The Hong Kong lifestyle is vivid and interesting. I can buy some stuffs conveniently because some stores still operate at night. I can enjoy a stunning Chinese lunch in one district, on the other hand I can still dine at an exquisite European restaurant with refined wine easily. Actually the living in Hong Kong is not as restrictive as other cities, you can do whatever you want. With the opulent innovation and high efficiency of Hong Kong people, it is very easy to produce high quality things in this great city. The lifestyle of Hong Kong helps me to participate the things I want to achieve, without restrict any idea, and therefore, I can unleash my creativity in other areas besides music. ” Mark claimed he was very fortunate to grow and work at this multifaceted and free city, so he hopes there will be more people to cherish this little but thriving place.
The Reasons Behind the Creative Design
During 90s and 00s, this talented producer has used most of his time and effort to develop his music career. In fact, he is willing to do any things that relate to art and design, “I like drawing and architecture design. If there is a thought in my mind, I will pay my whole devotion to achieve it. As I have lots of demands on pursuing my lifestyle, lots of creation must be involved. Whenever there are new things appear in front of me, which arouse my curiosity and desire for knowledge, then I will be more committed to have my work done in any better ways.” Photo-shooting is the hobby of this innovative designer in recent years, which was influenced by his friends, “Once my friend shot me some great magazine photos with a distinct mood, which were not as similar with my usual magazine photos. I was curious to know how to photo-shoot with such an effect like his skills, and started to understand that photo-shooting was full of mystery and knowledge. Afterward, I ask for the advices from the friends who is talented at photo-shooting, and then I practiced to shoot with human first, and shoot with scenes and objects later. ” Everyone can be very enthusiastic on doing something, but only a few of them can act like Mark who can finish any work perfectly with great perseverance. Besides enthusiasm, determination and meticulous attitude are the main factors for his success.
