The couple, who were resident in Hong Kong for three years, used objects from around their home as part of their ‘MTR Challenge’.

Many of their poses and props are relevant to each station’s name. Can you spot all of the references?

Alain says, “A look, an emotion, a coincidence, a humorous detail, a story or simply the light… these are the elements I look for when hunting for the perfect composition. With street photography, there is never any need to make an appointment – any place, any time is good to capture an everyday scene.”
