JUDGED BY
GREG GIRARD

Greg Girard has spent more than three decades examining the social and physical transformations taking place across Asia. His best-known work is perhaps City of Darkness, a detailed record of the self-governing Hong Kong enclave of Kowloon Walled City which, while it stood until 1992, was the most densely populated place on earth. Depicting beautiful compositions of claustrophobic and dangerous homes and passageways, it has served as a visual reference for directors, writers and game designers such as Christopher Nolan and William Gibson in creating imagined dystopias. More recently, Hotel Okinawa examines the large American military base in Japan’s southernmost prefecture, and has been described as “a document of the end of the American Century”.

Girard’s photographs have appeared in publications such as TIME, Newsweek, Fortune, Forbes, Elle, Paris-Match, Stern, and the New York Times Magazine, and he has been exhibited in galleries in Seoul, London, Vancouver, Helsinki and New York.
