What do “Deep water pier”, “Nine dragons city” and “Mandarin‘s lake” have in common with “Wong Tai Sin”, the name of a Taoist deity? They’re all districts in Kowloon.
This book is an exploration of what is often seen as Hong Kong’s shadow-side, from the viewpoints of community, consumerism, art, food, fashion and sex – 15 years after the handover. Scores of colour photographs bring the peninsula to the reader in a salute to street culture and the ordinary and extraordinary people of Kowloon.
