Shot in the infamous Yue Man Square, this photo highlights the fusion of Chinese and Western culture in Hong Kong, seen through the contrast between the western dressed male and the dilapidated industrial districts in Hong Kong. This contrast also represents the ability of Hong Kong's people to put aside their differences despite income inequality. This appreciation of diversity and differences is unique and rarely seen anywhere else in the world. It is amazing that pluralism exists despite the Hong Kong's wide range of different ethnic, socio economic, and religions.
