Push, stack, move, hustle
Steamy crowds of bright neon
Hong Kong will eat U

   Living in the heart of Kowloon since 2009, he directly felt bond to this place unique for its density and vibrancy. His first attempt of recording his new home took the form of the project Vertical Horizon released in 2012 as a photo book. It has been featured in major publications around the world. The photo book has been then reprinted as a second edition in 2014.

   2014 is also the year of the release of his second photo book Wild Concrete. This series focuses on trees and plants that are growing wildly on buildings in the middle of the busiest districts of Hong Kong. Romain see these trees as unexpected sprout of life redefining the relationship between man and the nature in an urban environment.
