Hong Kong MTR: This is not an exit

Yes, actually this is an exit, at a Hong Kong MTR station on Hong Kong Island. I’ve always wanted to use the final line from Brent Easton Ellis’ satirical novel American Psycho.

There are some images your drawn back to. An shot your proud of, for no particular reason. The above is one of those. I shot this back in 2009 and its always been a favorite. The lines, the texture, the complete randomness of capturing this while looking for the Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defense. Sometimes there’s no rhyme or reason as to what we like – just that we do. Other probably look at this and think – what a boring, shite photo.

Photos are a personal thing. I see things in this that other don’t. Everyone experiences the same thing, I think.
