Vertigo – Urban Photography by Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze

Hong Kong is one of the world’s most populated urban center and boasts one of the best skylines in the world. French photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze recently complied a vertigo-inducing collection of photographs taken from a very unique angle. Vertical Horizon highlights the geometry behind this amazing skyscraper city. According to Romain: “It’s easy to get a measure of a building from afar, but you can’t really appreciate a towering city structure until you’ve craned your neck up the length of its spine, admiring the way its reflective edges seem to scrape the sky," said the photographer. “The project is a deep immersion into the city’s thick atmospheres and a visual record of its wildly diverse built environment. This book is like a contemplative dive into the raw nature of Hong Kong and an expression of its vertical élan.” He has also captured cities such as Tokyo and Los Angeles.
