The Territories - Sarah Pannell
Melbourne-based documentary photographer, Sarah Pannell, is proud to release her latest self-published title; a tear-out poster book titled The Territories.
The Territories, shot over three annual visits to the New Territories - a quieter area of the greater Hong Kong region - is inspired by the souvenir calendars filled with glossy stock photos of the city's most famous landmarks, that her aunt gifted over the years of her childhood.
The calendars depicted picture-perfect landscapes of Victoria Harbour and the seaside tourist towns of Stanley and Repulse Bay. The Territories, on the other hand, serves as a capsule view of the Chinese-held territory and offers an alternative view of Hong Kong and the distinct elements that separate it from mainland China
Self published and printed in Melbourne, Australia.
Released in a full colour, 44 page, perfect bound, 337 x 261mm landscape book with perforated tear-out pages in an edition of 100.
