Hong Kong’s neon signs are disappearing. This ongoing photographic series portrays Hong Kong’s neon signs from a new perspective. The signs are shot vertically from below during night time. Glowing neon tubes contrast with the dark sky. Every few months, the locations are visited again in order to shoot the empty night sky for each neon sign that has been taken down
