Wong Wei-him (b.1975) is a street photographer and an architect based in Hong Kong. 

At first, I use camera to capture inspirations; interesting architectures, peculiar spaces or exquisite design details, for my design projects. It then becomes a habit that I bring my camera with me wherever I go. When I see anything that intrigues or touches me, I take out my camera and photograph it.  It was until I came across Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt and Japanese street photographer Shin Noguchi, so particular their works and the angle they reflect culture and humanity through their photos, I decided to make street photography.  Ever since photography has turned into one of my passions.
