    Photographer Alexandra Leese lives and works in London, but Hong Kong – thousands of miles away – is the city she calls home. 

    Leese has created a series of intimate portraits of the city’s young men, titled “Boys of Hong Kong,” celebrating the diversity of male beauty in the city.

    In this collaborative project with director Luke Casey, a group of young Hong Kong men from a variety of backgrounds welcomed the duo into their lives.

    They’re emblematic of a generation of Hong Kong youth that’s willing to express their masculinity in diverse ways, wanting to rip the tags off and be true to who they are.

    “They were very open and honest,” she says. “They showed me a new perspective of Hong Kong.”
