Urban Barcode (Hong Kong & Kowloon), 2013.

Manuel Irritier

As in hardly any other city, there exists a lack of one thing in Hong Kong: space. 

The photo series “Hong Kong | Urban Barcode” shows the solution for this problem with the help of close-up views: escaping upwards. Housing units are stacked together cellularly and melt into an anonymous mass. However – on closer inspection – one can detect the difference as well as the individuality in detail and that life is pulsing in confined space.
