Hong Kong Cruise Photographer - Genting Dream Cruise

A few months ago I was hired on a very special and unusual assignment, shooting advertising visuals onboard a cruise ship for Genting Dream Cruise, departing from Hong Kong and sailing to Vietnam and the Philippines. It was my first time traveling on such a vessel, let alone living on water for 2 weeks with the rest of our team. It was an amazing experience, at times challenging yet overall great fun. It was also my first project working with medium format camera Fujifilm GFX 50s.

Personal Project - Ordos, A Failed Utopia

I recently completed a personal project about Ordos, Inner Mongolia, mostly known as China's largest "Ghost Town".

Ordos is actually a regular provincial city located in the Gobi Desert region of Northern China, home to about 1 million people, and sitting on one of the richest land in the country with plenty of natural ressources such as coal, gas and rare earth metals. So rich that in early 2000's the local government decided to invest massively in the creation of an all new city, a "New Ordos", about 1 hour south from the Old Ordos. This new city would become a flamboyant political, cultural and economic center for the region, featuring state of the art infrastructure and world class architecture. A futuristic new capital of the North East, designed from scratch and meant to host over a million souls. Unfortunately this heavy investment coupled with poor planning resulted in very high property prices, so much that nobody actually moved in, leaving the city totally empty and abandoned. This phenomenon was well covered by the international press and made quite a few headlines world-wide.

Years later, I decided to visit Ordos to see what had become of the infamous city, documenting this unique decaying built landscape with a purely architectural approach. This series "Ordos - A Failed Utopia" was well received by the photography community and circulated widely online with features in several well respected blogs and magazines such as Archdaily, Dezeen, Fubiz, Digital Rev, Tech Insider, Business Insider, Wonderful Machine, Lost at E Minor and a few others.
