“I can’t get enough of the thrill” – Hong Kong-born photographer @ericolour’s photobook “Good Luck Hong Kong” is now also available as a special edition.
In addition to the signed photobook, the box also includes a large print (five different images available).

Eric’s “Good Luck Hong Kong” is filled with a plethora of faces, taken with a flash and at close-range, of the many different characters populating the streets between Hong Kong’s high-rise buildings.

““For me, what makes a person standing in front of me a human appears to be made up of three things, combined in a three-dimensional manner: common factors we share as humans; national characteristics; and personality.
Through photographs, new interests arise. For me that curiosity has only strengthened — it has become my living adrenaline now. This adrenaline is born from the pleasure in taking photographs. Walking ahead, step by step, looking and shooting without hesitation — it’s that moment that does it. I can’t get enough of the thrill.”
(from Eric’s afterword)
