Jimi grew up in the heyday of British colonized Hong Kong in the 1980’s and 90’s, when Hong Kong was considered the trade and business hub of Asia. Barely getting used to the glam of Hong Kong, he moved to Rochester NY for college and Cleveland OH for work afterwards. 

This dichotomy of worlds has majorly influenced Jimi’s affinity for outsiders and can be seen in his work; capturing the underdogs of a Hong Kong that is in flux and struggling with an identity crisis.  All photos were made on 35mm film since 2015.  

Jimi lives in Hong Kong.
