Growing up in Hong Kong I was always very fascinated by people's improvisations and clever use of found objects around them, especially back in the day when it was a fishing village, people were very resourceful and keep every material they find for future use. After I saw a collection of photos that captured people's clever solutions in Hong Kong - 'Informal Solutions' documented by the brilliant photographer Michael Wolf, I decided to do so myself too.
Photos taken by Michael Wolf - 'Informal Solutions'
Here are some photos I took of market set ups both in Hong Kong and London, market stalls are fascinating places because you see a lot of improvisations and clever use of objects that we never thought before. And day after days of setting the market up and taking it down, they've found many ways of making their lives a little bit easier with simple and inexpensive solutions.
