While studying in Hong Kong back in 2014, I started a photo project that stemmed from a game of UNO with my friends. This collection of photos are self portraits that I shot in my school’s photo studio with assistance from my friend Dominique. Sometimes I’m not able to access models immediately, so I just use myself for these conceptual test shoots. My goal was to play with colors in a way that was reminiscent of UNO. Black is my favorite color, so I got some pieces of clothes from the local fashion stores in HK. I wish I remembered the names. Other pieces came from more notable stores like Zara and TopShop.
Bonus: The original concept photo (below) was shot in my bedroom at my parent’s house probably a year prior to me visiting Hong Kong.
