Over the past week, I shot the Hong Kong version of the "Happy" song by Pharrell Williams. It merely started as an idea, and became this... Enjoy!

Many couples from mainland China come to Hong Kong to have their wedding pictures taken in front of famous sightseeing spots (here in front of Victoria Harbour in Tsim Sha Tsui). I have spotted them all over the world: Eiffel Tower or esplanade du Trocadéro in Paris, in Central Park in New York, on People Square in Shanghai. They often have very inventive positions, like lying down on the steps or jumping in the air together.

My video for the New York Times is up: I followed a famous Danish chef, Mads Refslund, known for foraging in the nature to source his cooking ingredients, as he tried to do the same in Hong Kong's concrete jungle.
The renowned Danish chef Mads Refslund tried his hand at searching for edible wild plants on one of Hong Kong’s outlying islands.

"Interesting" is a concept you only find on Flickr.
