"Overhead" by Tommy Lei, ,
Colloquially known as the Monster Buildings, this consortium of buildings comprised of - Oceanic Mansion, Fook Cheong Building, Montane Mansion, Yick Cheong Building, and Yick Fat Building - were built during a population boom in the 1960s to offer government-subsidized housing for low-income residents. These buildings are architecturally synonymous with the fabric and culture of Hong Kong - at least my version of it. This is a familiar sight everyday when I grew up in more slummy parts of Kowloon. Every time I see this image, it's a great reminder and testament to our grit and resilience as a body of people, Chinese, Asian and Hong Konger. As if I am looking up at these towering buildings that once loomed over my child-size body everyday.
