La Galerie is pleased to present a solo exhibition by French photographer Cyril Delettre featuring his latest series of work Walk Don’t Walk and Wild City . Living and working in Hong Kong for the past 7 years, Cyril captures the unique, mixed spirit of the city. His work explores the city’s contrasting rhythms, where slowness meets speed, and the past meets the present.

WALK DON’T WALK

I caught people lost in their thoughts at the crosswalk.

Stripped of any representation of themselves, they simply wait. I observe them as if they were on stage, each one carrying a thousand stories.

Time is suspended, it is an irreducible wait.

They are almost motionless. Between them and my lens, the flow of trams and buses creates a veil.

I try to contrast the speed of the city to the suspended time of the individuals, stopped in their tracks for this short moment.

For me, this is a symbolic image of Hong Kong, where the times overlap.

- Cyril Delettre

WILD CITY

My photographic walks in Hong Kong have led me to play with the streets. I have invited the ink paintings of Grand So, a street artist on Hollywood Road whom I meet daily, into my photographs.

I wanted to animate the walls captured in my photographs with his animals on recycled paper, mixing contemporary Western architecture with traditional Chinese animals, concrete with paper, urban pollution with recycled materials, my gaze in motion with his timeless work.

It is a game on the mixing of times, places, and cultures; it is an image of the richness of the encounter.

All artworks in Wild City are unique pieces.

- Cyril Delettre
