2.0 out of 5 stars If you like looking at blank walls with box windows, then this book is for you!, 6 May 2007
This review is from: Hong Kong: Front Door / Back Door: (Hardcover)
The book is very large in size, giving readers all they can see. Although the photographs are true to Hong Kong's everyday life, of streets and people, I'd say 40% of this big book are double-page spreads of close-ups of flat units from the outside. After three double-pages the reader has got to think, "alright, I get the picture" but they never stop. I'm sure they're trying to convey how densely populated Hong Kong is, and tries to show this through frequent appearance of photos of square windows across the page, but their method of showing has the reader feeling fed-up rather than appreciative.

On the other hand, photographs are of high quality and vivid. You really get a taste of Hong Kong in these few pages.
