Urban Flux is a series of multiple exposure images of Hong Kong’s most iconic buildings in the central business district. The resultant abstraction of these contemporary structures is a representation of the constant movement and change in this metropolis. One’s gaze is lost with the normally gleaming towers being replaced by diffused facades. The sense of movement reduces these structures to their majestic form in the urban environment and creates a feeling of frenzy characteristic of this city. The images were made by creating in-camera multiple exposure files.

Ulana Switucha has photographed throughout Asia for over 30 years and currently resides in Hong Kong. She creates evocative landscape, portrait and documentary photographs working in both colour and black and white. Influenced by a Japanese aesthetic, there is an evolving minimalist style and contemplative peacefulness in her recent work.
