Explore Hong Kong’s ‘Vertical Horizon’ in These Reverse-Vertigo Inducing Photos

We’ve seen some pretty crazy, vertigo-inducing rooftopping and skyscraper photography in the past, but French photographer and graphic artist Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze‘s “Vertical Horizon” photo series takes the opposite approach to yield a similar awe-inspiring effect.

Jacquet-Lagrèze first touched down in Hong Kong in 2009, and immediately fell in love with the city’s juxtaposition of brand new skyscrapers right next to traditional tong lau buildings. He eventually realized that the unifying aspect of all of these places is the awe they leave you in when you look straight up.

Made up of gorgeous architecture shots of swirling staircases and towering highrises, the Vertical Horizon series explores Hong Kong in an unconventional way. Jacquet-Lagrèze calls it “a photographic journey between the buildings of a relentlessly growing city.” Whatever it is, it’s pretty cool.

Here’s a selection of photos from the Vertical Horizon series:

You can see more of Jacquet-Lagrèze’s Hong Kong photography by visiting his website. Or, if you really like the project, you can purchase his 160-page Vertical Horizon hardcover book — illustrated by 86 beautiful color plates — for 380 Hong Kong Dollars (about $ 36 US) at this link.
