Hong Kong based photographer, Andy Yeung, shows us how densely populated his city is by flying a drone over and capturing the view with a wide-angle lens. Although Yeung’s photo series “Urban Jungle” is similar in subject matter to German photographer Michael Wolf’s photo series "Architecture of Density", the perspective is different in both. Michael Wolf shows us Hong Kong’s beehive like apartments from the ground while Yeung takes us to the sky. Both are worth seeing.

Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated cities. Because of historical, political, and geographical constraints, the city’s 7 million residents are packed into only 23.7% of Hong Kong’s land area, of which the actual land available for housing is a mere 6.8%. Many Hong Kong residents live literally like dogs.
