Photoshop whizz willieraipan has produced a series of pictures which unite old and new Hong Kong. Previously the blog showcased ‘HK Man’s’ efforts to contrast yesterday’s city with modern scenes captured from the same spot.
Willieraipan takes this one step further by cleverly blending HK Man’s vintage and contemporary photos, making it seem as if there is a ‘glitch in the matrix’…

For Good: Film Project consists of five film makers who, with NGOs, make visible the hidden sides of Hong Kong.
An exciting première was held at the Asia Society Hong Kong Centre’s Miller Theatre in February. Film makers were present for a lively discussion of their personal styles and motivations, as well as how each film developed from idea to finished product. The discussion included the social issues raised in each film, why they matter, along with ways in which all of us can make a difference.
