Trade 74 | Dogsday

If you had a idea in your head of what Hong Kong is like then Lantau Island is the opposite. Red taxis are replaced by beaten up bicycles, high rises exchanged for rural countryside and bustling crowds for roaming livestock. It seemed a little odd a first when I arrived late and Giuliano took me for the midnight tour perched on the back of his cargo bike/trike. But the villages of Lantau quickly grew on me.


"You know those intricate food layouts you see all over Instagram and Pinterest? Rustic cutlery and tables when no one ever actually eats like that... What if we did that, just with dog food?" This was my initial proposal when I met Guiliano through Trade 70 as he explained his human grade ingredients subscription dog food business.

So on returning from UAE I was hosted by Giuliano, Geraldine and, of course, Shar Pei Alfonzo for a twist on food photography as well as documenting some of the dogs of Hong Kong.
