This photograph was taken in one of the oldest and most traditional neighborhoods of Hong Kong. In Sheung Wan, the narrow cobblestone streets are full of shops selling Chinese medicine, incense, and dried fish. Strangely, this place feels a world away from the skyscrapers and high-end retail stores down the road in Central. When I noticed this man reading in a darkened doorway, I was struck by his peaceful composure. Now as I look at this image, I wonder how he views the changing face of Hong Kong.
This photograph depicts Kosovar-Albanian children playing on the grounds where the roots of the Kosovo breakup from Serbia originated. (Adem Jashari Memorial Complex in Prekaz, Skenderaj, Kosovo)
