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."
