ON JAN 21, 2014
Kevin Lynch, ad man by day and by night, chose a most unusual way to live for a year in Hong Kong. Rather than settling in one place, he decided to get acquainted with the city by staying exclusively in AirBnB accommodations. Roughly midway through, he shared some entertaining snippets about his experience.

Kam Cheong Kwan (KC Kwan) works in a print shop by day, and at night he trawls the back alleys and side streets of Hong Kong, capturing the underbelly of the city where he grew up. When asked about his work, the self-taught street photographer states: "I'm not photographer, I just like taking pictures." His images are raw, gritty snapshots of Hong Kong depicting scenes not seen in tourism promos. (in Cantonese)
