Avenue of Stars

 

Last week I was shooting in Hong Kong and found time to slip away in the evening to the Avenue of Stars - a promenade in Kowloon modelled on the Hollywood Hall of Fame. I've been interested in the rise of the selfie and culture to project ourselves as celebrities for a while. This walkway was the perfect place to capture people photographing themselves with the intensity of the paparazzi - metres from the plaques honoring the greats of Chinese and Hong Kong cinema.
