an afternoon with bilitisc chan

a few photographs from a truly gloomy afternoon in hong kong. the rain did away to any notion of creating some wonderful golden hour pictures, but the resulting fog and grey did set the tone for the afternoon’s session. grey skies appear to be as much a problem here in hong kong / shenzhen as they were in seoul.



tim van der merwe is based between shenzhen, southern china and seoul, south korea. the aesthetics of his photographs are drawn from his background as a musician, the last decade living in asia, and colouring that reflects the atlantic, whose coast he grew up near. he values calm moments, quiet simplicity, and authentic expression, elements that he seeks to portray in all of his photographs.
