Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze is a French photographer and while traveling around Hong Kong he managed to capture some incredible shots of the city’s rooftops portraying the unique side of Hong Kong.
As Romain says himself, ‘This series began with a stroke of luck. It was one morning in 2014 when I found myself on a rooftop while scouting for another photo project. The sky was very clear that day, and the rising sun illuminated the city little by little, opening small pockets of light through the buildings. At that moment, a patch of rooftop nearby was suddenly bathed in light, and something on it moved. Looking more intently, I realized it was someone mending an aerial, as though spotlighted by the sun. I quickly snapped the scene, entranced by the magic of the moment.’
