Life in Pic­tures

Expat Living (Hong Kong) - - Life & Family - BY BROOKE CHENOWETH

Pho­tog­ra­pher FRED­ERIK JACOBOVITS of­fers a fam­ily pho­tog­ra­phy ses­sion with a dif­fer­ence – one that will truly cap­ture your life in Hong Kong. In­trigued? We sat down with him to find out more about his con­cept.

Your pho­tos are unique; what in­spired you to take this ap­proach?

Peo­ple nowa­days tend to take thou­sands of iPhone pho­tos, half of which are lost, some are ter­ri­ble and for the most part noth­ing is done with them.

My con­cept of “your life pho­tographed” is based on the idea of old fam­ily photo al­bums, and on the lack of a good “doc­u­men­tary” of how my life used to be when I was small. I was the youngest son of a diplo­mat fam­ily and we used to move around a lot; and, although I do have some photo al­bums, most con­sist of “high­lights” such as birth­day par­ties, Christ­mas, sum­mer hol­i­days and so on, but not day-to-day life. How cool would it be to have a photo al­bum of how life ac­tu­ally used to be – from wak­ing up in the morn­ing till the bed­time rit­u­als – and so the con­cept was born.
