Patient Paparazzi

In HK, the following of local stars is probably more engrained than in the UK, with daily papers and weekly magazines being full of every aspect of their lives and read by all areas of society and all ages and sex.

Although there are cases where the personal life of the rich and famous is open to a painful degree (Edison Chen and the Twin’s singer, Gillian Chung from a year ago); these are few and far between with the press and paparazzi being much more respectful of their prey than in the West.

Saturday morning on the way to a gallery in Sheung Wan had us pass by this gathering at a small, out of the way, local cafe for a bunch of Hong Kong celebrities.

I couldn’t tell you who they are or what they do – but the way the photographers waited patiently for the photo op is very indicative of HK journalism.
