Thirty-one pet owning families feature in Mihaela Tudor’s Collective Portraits of South Lantau Pet Owners. In putting the collection together Mihaela, a professional photographer based in Mui Wo, says she was inspired by the beauty of Hong Kong’s natural landscape and its people and the fact that every other family in Lantau has a pet.
“I have been lucky enough to spend the pandemic in a happy bubble, in HK’s countryside, a place that has experience very few COVID- 19 cases,” Mihaela says.
“My intention for this series is to show a lesser-known part of Hong Kong and to share the stories of the people in my community. In a year when we spend much more time at home with our family, I wanted to celebrate togetherness, love and simple joy.”
