Honkey Kong

Paying tribute to retro 2D video games in a shoe ad campaign, Stockholm-based photographer Christian Åslund used the streets of Hong Kong as a backdrop for his navigating subjects. The images were shot from skyscrapers toward the ground, using a telephoto lens to make the photographs as flat as possible. Honestly, clever!
