Image Name: 22°15’38.7″N 114°13’51.5″E Photographer Name: Mariana Bisti Year: 2018 Image Description: The principle that organizes the official identity of Hong Kong under Chinese rule reads: “wěndìng fánróng” (stability & prosperity). Yet, there is a missing subtext that one can borrow from Robert Venturi’s seminal book on postmodern architecture: “complexity & contradiction”. These two terms reveal the complementary foundations upon which the official Chinese discourse constructs the image of HK as an exuberant and thriving community. But HK is more than that: its complex and contradictory nature stems from its turbulent historical past and the perpetual movement of goods, capital and people. These characteristics are scribed on the body of the city, manifested in the urban landscape. The city’s structural formations and functions encapsulate the spirit of its past, present and future, speak of its monstrosities and miracles and reveal a wealth of contradictions that constitute HK one of the most attractive and mesmerizing dystopias on earth.

Image Name: BLIZZARD Photographer Name: Phanes Chatzistamatiou Year: 2018 Image Description: I had just arrived at Thessaloniki, i was in the house when i felt the atmosphere… it was freezing. I went to check and see what happened and i realized that nothing was working, not the heat, not the air conditioner, not even the internet connection… I had only one choice to pick my bare essentials and go stay with a friend until everything was back at normal. Outside had -5C, at the same night snow made it’s appearance and the next day everything was white! I saw this opportunity and without hesitation i grabbed my camera and carefully started to wonder around the city ready to capture any moment! Snow gave me a unique perspective since the ugliness of cement was covered, and the snow was like blank page ready to be written with some cold, but exciting new stories!
