Urban Loneliness

about Harimao Lee

Self-taught photographer, Harimao Lee was first attracted to photography through rooftopping, a risky practice where access is gained into tall buildings in order to shoot stunning imagery that often features the photographer in precarious positions. When friends invited him up on a roof to see the Hong Kong skyline, he suddenly saw that his own city was even more beautiful than he’d realized.

Since then, he has branched out to shoot cities from all types of angles, telling the story of a young man caught up in the city, trying to find his place among the dominating architecture and the crowds.

“I think everyone can take a good photo, but it is different if people truly love your photo. I just keep trying to add more elements, like love and culture, so that my photos can arouse the viewer’s sympathy. It’s more important to transfer a message or story to the audience than the beauty of the photo itself.”

Based in Hong Kong, one of his most known photo is that captured on the flight from his city to Rome. Harimao came under fire for taking an unusual carry-on item onto a business class: a fairy lightning.
