BEHIND THE LENS

Michael Kistler is a Hong Kong photographer specializing in fine art urban photography. Originally from Minneapolis, his passion for photography was sparked by a trip to Europe at age 18 and has since taken him to numerous cities around the world chasing new images. After spending more than 10 years in Tokyo, he recently moved with his family to Hong Kong. His distinctive style injects a vintage stylistic quality to everyday encounters. Through his lens, Michael invites the audience to explore the ambiguity of the human element of of cities through a variety of urban vignettes. Each piece elevates seemingly mundane subjects — from a street crossing to a playground floor — with a signature style all his own.
