This is a recent image from Chungking Mansions in Tsim Sha Tsui. I have done a lot of shooting around the area but this was the first time I actually went inside and saw the residential area from this perspective. It was very cool and a stark contrast from what most people get to see. In a lot of ways it was like walking into another world or dimension. All of these people living side by side and on top of one another, yet leading their own separate lives. I idea I was hoping to convey was one of almost claustrophobic density.
