back in march, designboom featured drone photography of hong kong by local artist andy yeung. his series ‘urban jungle’ depicts the city’s stunning architectural sprawl from hundreds of meters above the earth’s surface, highlighting the extreme heights and dramatic depths covered by the crowded urban landscape.

 

with the arrival of the city’s fog season, yeung returns with a new collection titled ‘urban fog’, this time captured by night. once again, the images bring the viewer high above the tightly-packed residential towers and sprawling skyscrapers to perceive the urban landscape from the sky. dimly lit by warm and cool lights emanating from the surrounding buildings, the fleeting fog weightlessly hangs like a veil above the dense metropolis. ‘I’ve seen a lot of amazing fog-themed photographs taken in the day time and I think it would be interesting to capture hong kong in the thick mist in the night time with a drone,’ yeungs tells designboom. ‘I named this project ‘urban fog’ because I want to present how fog is illuminated by the city lights. hong kong has long been a city of bright lights and you can see the various colored lights of the buildings light up the fog from underneath.’
