About these images:
"In 1996 I went to Hong Kong to print “Carnaval” — at that time it was much cheaper to print there — even with shipping and a stay of five weeks — the time it took to get the book ready there.
I took the opportunity to photograph the city that the following year would return to Chinese rule (it was British at the time)".
Each edition is of 5 prints only, plus 2 artist's proofs (reserved for museums and important collections).
