Hong Kong’s Vertical Graveyard photographed by Finbarr Fallon

Vertical Graveyard

Finbarr Fallon is a professional photographer based in London and Singapore, specialized in architectural photography.

He recently completed his long-term photographic project called “Dead Space”, a series of photographs taken over 5 years that with wisdom and awareness immortalize – strange to say – the vertical Graveyard built on the hills of Hong Kong.

The space dedicated to Graveyards is a serious problem for Hong Kong, and if Pet Architecture was inaugurated in Tokyo, in Hong Kong the government actively encourages the cremation of bodies after death, precisely for a matter of space.

“So much is written about how much Hong Kong is destined and I found it fascinating that density and verticality are a distinctive feature of Hong Kong structures both for the living and for the dead,” says Finbarr Fallon at My Modern Met
