‘vertical horizon’, by french graphic artist romain jacquet-lagreze is a photographic journey between the buildings of the relentlessly growing metropolis of hong-kong. the image series takes a deep dive into the city’s thick atmospheres, showcasing a visual record of its wildly diverse built environment. presented in a hard-cover book, the collection of unique compositions contemplate the raw nature of chinese culture and the expression of its sheer vivacity.
