Prove your humanity

Over the course of this blast into the past, this non-suffering artiste has learned he must sacrifice certain projects and ideas in order for his lens to maintain that prime-actual angle. Photography is, after all, all about mind-focus. And Hou is one man with a plan. 


Whether huddled up in the hutongs surrounding Zhongnanhai or trekking through the off the beaten path villages of North Africa, Hou to this day maintains a fresh outlook on everything new and unexpected the streets of China have to offer. From the Atlas to Beijing, Hou has a plan — A, B and See.
