About Concrete Stories
Concrete Stories” is the fourth of a series of photobooks by Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze on the extreme urbanization of Hong Kong and the relationship of concrete structures and the people who inhabit them. Unlike thematically similar works (e.g., Michael Wolf’s brilliant Hong Kong photographs), Jacquet-Lagrèze utilizes the buildings, rooftops, skyscrapers and courtyards as stages to tell brief human moments. Within a mosaic of window frames, balconies, air conditioners and building sections we find couples holding hands, solitary men practicing golf swings, women hanging clothes to dry or people watering their plants.
