The Hong Kong International Photo Festival

Yesterday afternoon I visited Andrew,who has just returned from a photo show at Taikoo Plaza:


I browsed the catalog and the photos of Raghu Rai are simply amazing. Apparently, he was assistant to Henri Cartier-Bresson and a Magnum photographer.

I was struck immediately by the semblance of his photos to the paintings of Breugel, one of which is attached below.

Of course, the experience was enhanced by Yoichi Single Malt poured over a chunky piece of ice.
