Photographer's Note

Tai O, the Venice of Hong Kong. One of the most popular Lantau tourist spots, Tai O is also the oldest fishing village in Hong Kong. Tourists crowd into village shops for dried seafood and local delicacies. .

Tai O is home to the Tanka people, a community of fisher folk who’ve built their houses on stilts above the tidal flats of Lantau Island for generations. These unusual structures are interconnected, forming a tightly-knit community that literally lives on the water. Their enchanting world is a photographer's paradise
