THE FORMER VILLAGE
eric d vries

Series of photographs taken from several sessions between 2016 to 2018 of an abandoned fishing village which the Hong Kong government evicted the inhabitants from their homes in 2011. In the 80s over 2000 people lived in this 250-year old Ma Wan village popular for its seafood restaurants.

P A R I S *new

Collection of monochrome photographs of a Paris trip I did in 2018.


"It’s third day of my stay in Paris having a coffee at Cafe de Flore at Boulevard Saint-Germain while writing this little intro. Cafe de Flore, a legendary bar / cafe where artists and photographers met in the late 50s. I grab my camera to shoot some people passing by and talk to the waiter in my best French. The soft rains make the street in front of me a bit shiny, the same soft rains I had at Pere Lachaise cemetary earlier the day standing at Jim Morrisson’s grave. Just had to see it…
I pay for the coffee and take a last shot of one of the waiters standing outside smoking as I cross the boulevard to the metro, the one that will bring me to Montmartre… in just 16 minutes."
