When I feel down I take a train to the Happy Valley has won the PHmuseum 2020 Photography Grant 2nd Prize

“Piefrancesco has been taking his camera to the streets of Hong Kong since 2014 to photograph the cityscape during a pivotal and dynamic time, documenting the Umbrella Revolution, Celada captures almost surreal scenes with quiet grace. The viewer is granted access to a curious view of humanity through the perspective of the eternal and silent city itself. This semi-detached, but poetic perspective is complemented in this series by the merits of the photographer’s strong visual signature and compositions. The marriage of conceptual and technical strengths make the work not just appealing, but also an important document of a crucial dynamic in the city’s history.”
