    Jason Au

Due to the current COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong, there were not many commuters left in this underpass. However, it gave rise to a peculiar scene where those wall reliefs, usually hidden from the crowd, could now be unveiled and juxtaposing with the striding motions of real-life passers-by and their reflections - 'everyone' was maintaining 'social distance' from each other.

Born in 1994, Jason Au is an award-winning fine art photographer based in Hong Kong. He specialises in black and white photography and has a specific interest in street photography and portraiture. His high aesthetic works often incorporate creative, geometric and balanced compositions, with prominent use of contrasting light and shadows, along with dynamic interplay between texture and forms.
