Hong Kong’s urban expansion is revealed through the “Memories Of The Future” photo series shot by Portuguese photographer Nuna Assis. These photos feature extremely moving photos of how a place can be completely “revamped” into an urban jungle.

Based in Hong Kong, Nuno Assis tries to capture the essence of the city’s concrete jungle and its people. The locals are basically encapsulated between buildings, and it seems like you are part of a dystopia, a world image by George Orwell in the future.

“To see the city through photography is a creative opportunity,” says the talented photographer. “And it’s also a motivation to travel.”

“I went on holiday recently, and picked a city where I knew I would have people from the community showing me around,” says Nuno about his Instagram friends. “The community is a strong motivation. Now I rarely travel alone.”
