Photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze is a French expat who lives in the heart of Kowloon, his base for recording Hong Kong.  These images are from Vertical Horizons (also a book), which he describes as “a contemplative dive into the raw nature of Hong Kong and an expression of its vertical elan.” (Click images for original, larger views)
