Super Albino: Llamas are awesome! (443)
My Bio
I am a French fine art photographer living in Hong Kong where I shoot most of my projects.

In 2011 I started working on my first photo book Vertical Horizon focused on the vertical growth of Hong Kong. This series has firstly been published in 2012 in Hong Kong with Asia One. It has since then been reprinted as a second edition in 2014.

During the same year, my second series Wild Concrete was released. It depicts the resilience of nature in the middle of Hong Kong's busiest districts by portraying banyan trees, also called strangler trees, which are spreading their roots on the concrete of buildings still inhabited.

Since 2013 I have been exhibiting my work in Hong Kong, Singapore, China and the Netherlands. My photos have been featured in major publications across the world (The Guardian, National Geographic, Huffington Post, CNN, Wall Street Journal, El Pais, Le Figaro Magazine, Die Welt, Apple Daily).

I am now working on new projects also focused on Hong Kong and its unmatched urban development.

Thanks for the positive crit! I'm glad you took time to write it!
Soft focus was indeed intended to highlight more the bud and the dying flowers. But since you mention it, you make me curious about how it would have look like if the whole flower was sharp. haha
Next time I'll do the test!
