Photographer and filmmaker Tristan Zhou doesn’t live in Asia anymore, but it is the continent where he spent a major part of his life. He lived in Tokyo until he was 11 and then moved to Shanghai. After he finished the Shanghai Institute of Visual Art, Zhou moved to San Francisco and after that, he settled in Seattle.
He started his series of photos of Asian cities in order to show everyone how beautiful they can be.
“I really love the richness of culture in many Asian cities and also the human impact on many different things in Asia,” says Zhou, explaining why he started this project. “I also love our traditional architectures and religions even though I’m not religious. Many big Asian cities are over populated and it’s really interesting to see how people build their cities, like Hong Kong for example.”
