Panoramic View of Hong Kong – A Unique Photography Experience

It seems like everyday I write at least one article about photography. I love it. I’ve always been fascinated with panoramic photography because it’s like looking at a bunch of photographs in one.

Whether the photographer uses a special lens and software or stitches together multiple shots, a panoramic photograph is one where the view is greater/wider than that of the human eye, in other words, you cannot see it all without moving your eyes.

John Choy is my favorite panoramic photographer and the photographs at ntk.johnchoy.com take my breath away. This collection is about the Hong Kong Resettlement Estates. After that legendary fire displaced more than 50,000 people in 1953, the Hong Kong government built public housing to try and help those that lost everything. Even after that, for decades, the government continued to work hard resettling tens of thousands of refugees from the China mainland and Vietnam who lived in shacks. This was all part of the Hong Kong Resettlement Estates.

As of the end of 2009, all of these estates are closed. This stunning and intimate photography is one of the only mementos from that significant period in Hong Kong history.

You cannot get the full panoramic effect from these pictures below.
