I was recently asked to pitch for my favourite hotel in Hong Kong, The Regal Hotel. The Mushenko team stayed there for five whole weeks in 2008 whilst we were doing a rebrand for McDonald's Asia. It felt like home and the staff really looked after us. I've got fond memories of the rooftop pool and 5pm happy hours. We were shooting at 6am every morning so the canapés at happy hour were often dinner. Thanks to Lucas Boyd for his help with this pic.
Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.
