Ur­ban Jun­gle


Hong Kong Tatler - - Faces -

Many la­bel Hong Kong as an ur­ban jun­gle but few would imag­ine com­ing across an ele­phant, rhi­noc­eros or chee­tah in the heart of She­ung Wan. How­ever, that was the case—at least in two di­men­sions—at the open­ing of Sean Lee-davies’ Love is Wild photo ex­hi­bi­tion at the Liang Yi Mu­seum. The show was staged by Project C:change, a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion founded by Sean that fo­cuses on en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues such as waste man­age­ment, the overuse of plas­tics and the il­le­gal trade in en­dan­gered wildlife. All pro­ceeds from the sale of the prints will go to char­i­ties en­gaged in those is­sues. The idea for Love is Wild came to Sean four years ago when, in South Africa for a friend’s wed­ding, he came across a rhi­noc­eros killed for its horn, a dis­tress­ing scene that brought home to him the plight of en­dan­gered wildlife. For the ex­hi­bi­tion, Sean pho­tographed some of Hong Kong’s most recog­nis­able faces get­ting up close and per­sonal with some of the planet’s most iconic wild an­i­mals, both on land and in the sea, a poignant se­ries high­light­ing the majesty of the an­i­mals.
