STACKED: The Insane Density Of Hong Kong’s Public Housing
Peter Stewart’s brilliant and eye-opening photos
Housing costs in Hong Kong are astronomical, and a third of Hong Kong’s population is crammed into subsidized public housing. In a new photo series called Stacked, Australian photographer Peter Stewart documented the public towers from the outside, showing some of the most densely packed neighbourhoods in the city.
The series began after several trips to the city. “I started exploring alleyways and places like the infamous Chungking Mansions for a look at the grittier side of the city and its structures,” Stewart says. “On a photowalk with a friend one day I was taken to one of the big public housing estates in Kowloon. … From there on, the fascination formed with photographing these structures.”
