The Macallan Masters of Photography ‘capture the character of your land’

Sean Lee-Davies captures the character of Hong Kong

Last week we brought you into the heart and soul of Russia through photographer Vladimir Vyatkin’s portrayal of his homeland.  Today we invite you to discover Hong Kong through the lens of director and photographer, Sean Lee-Davies.

Local photographer Sean Lee-Davies, one of Hong Kong's most prominent photographers, began his professional career in magazines, culminating in his appointment as director of editorial and photography for 12 Tatler magazines across Asia. During his career Sean interviewed and photographed some of the most famous personalities in the world including; Marc Jacobs, Eva Herzigova, Leonardo Di Caprio, Roger Federer and Cara Delavigne.

From the steppes of the Mongolian plains to the red carpets of Cannes, Sean is comfortable switching between high end fashion shoots for Vogue to filming for National Geographic.  Having worked with Burberry, Bentley and Cartier, The Macallan was in esteemed company.

Just as Elliott captured the eccentricities of our great Scottish people for our latest Masters of Photography Series, Sean delves deep into the character of Chinese people in the cultural hub of Hong Kong.  His images of the stunning vertical city are visually striking and dynamic.  He mixes the angular architecture with iconic cultural practises and secret street moments.  He challenges viewers to change perspective and sometimes view images differently.  Our favourite image is of the International Commerce Centre glowing in the early morning light – simply enchanting. What’s yours?

Have you visited Hong Kong?  Do Sean’s images evoke memories of an unforgettable trip?  We’re asking aspiring photographers around the world to capture the heart and soul of their homeland - visit our Masters of Photography website and share your stories with us!

Just as photography engages the senses, our precious single malt whisky does the same thing through flavour and rich character.  Discover each of the 58 whiskies from The Macallan Master of Photography: Elliott Erwitt Edition here and let them transport you on a journey around Scotland.
