The project EVEN ODDS has always been very intertwined with me as a creator. Had I not gone to Hong Kong and spent half a year living and studying there this project would not have been made. It is a result of a lot of late night conversations in all kinds of places with all kinds of people I met during that time.
Being a young creative myself the feeling of chasing something you can’t put into words is utterly familiar. This project has been my attempt at capturing stories like those I had heard and trying to meet more young creators in Hong Kong’s scattered creative scene.
There are numerous stories out there similar to the ones in EVEN ODDS. However, for me the creative melting pot of Hong Kong has always been a great source of inspiration that to this day I feel like I have not quite understood yet. No other city combines such a variety of cultures, influences and backgrounds like Hong Kong does for me. EVEN ODDS is a small piece of that culture and its creativity that I want to give back to the city and its creators.
