These photos, part of a series called Wild Concrete by artist Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze, show Hong Kong in a completely new light, and bring new a new meaning to the term, “Concrete Jungle”.

The artist describes the series as follows:

Usually wherever human beings are thriving, they always try to keep in control their direct environment. But in this bustling city, trees can grow impressively on residential buildings. They are the proof that our control is not ever-lasting and they show us how this very loss of control can bring true beauty.

Wild Concrete is about nature taking back, it is a demonstration of the tenacity of life in our urban environment.
