Grit and Grain with Jenn in Hong Kong

 

“With the limitation of the film roll, only the most genuine moments were captured.”

 

Freelance photographer Eugene Wong worked at the PR and Marketing department of Harvey Nichols Hong Kong for a few years before changing his career path into becoming a photographer. His degree of Digital Photography for Advertising opened up many career opportunities – nevertheless he very much enjoys analogue images without any digital post-production, such as this shooting with model Jenn L of Style.

“The entire collection of film images was taken with one roll of Fujifilm Simple Ace disposable camera as it helps me to capture the most genuine, raw and organic emotions and natural facial expressions of the model.” With the limitation of the film roll of 27 images, only the most spontaneous and genuine moments were captured – a photo story that according to the artist, “shows a day spent with Jenn that starts with more distanced, posey daytime images to more intimate and organic images at the end of the day and ultimately to Netflix and chill at home.”
