Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze, who grew up in France, has been living in the Kowloon area of Hong Kong since 2009. The density and vibrancy of the city inspired him to try to capture its changing landscape through photography.

His second published collection of photographs, “Wild Concrete,” explores how nature manages to hang on in the city’s most developed neighborhoods. The photos look at urban greenery: not the human-made parks and gardens but the opportunistic wild plants that still manage to find a home.
