Frenetic City is a series from Singaporean photographer, printmaker, and art director Zhou Hanshun that examines the pace of modern life in Hong Kong. A graduate of the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts Singapore and RMIT University, Zhou uses photography as a way to investigate and document culture and people in cities he’s lived in.
《Frenetic City》（狂热的城市）是新加坡摄影师、版画家和艺术总监Zhou Hanshun（周傼顺）所创作的一个摄影系列，通过一系列黑白影像探讨了现代香港社会的生活步伐。周傼顺毕业于新加坡南洋艺术学院和皇家墨尔本理工大学，他选择了用摄影的方式来探讨和记录自己所生活的城市里的文化和人。
Frenetic City was created during a three-year residence in Hong Kong, in which Zhou became fascinated with the chaotic rhythm of the city. Using multiple exposures of black-and-white film with upwards of 25 exposures per image, Zhou photographed busy locations across Hong Kong, capturing its residents in haunting form.
《Frenetic City》是他在香港生活的三年期间所拍摄的，在这里，他爱上这座城市的混乱节奏。他用黑白胶片拍摄了香港各个繁华地段，通过多重曝光的方式，重叠 25个以上的画面，以重复交叠的影像记录下生活在这里的人们。
According to a report by the U.N., the world’s population will reach 10 billion by 2050, with three quarters of humans living in cities. For Zhou, Hong Kong is just a starting point for the Frenetic City series, which he plans on extending to document other crowded cities across our increasingly overpopulated world. According to Zhou, “To say life moves fast in a city is an understatement. Time in the city seems to flow quicker; memories in the city tend to fade away faster. Nothing seems to stand still in a city.”
