A spotlight on Macao's architectural landscape
PHOTOS Donl Lao
Macao has a diverse urban landscape that sees a complex mix of old and new, East and West. To Donl Lao, a local young photographer in his 30s who has just returned from travelling across the globe, such uniqueness is nowhere to be found in the rest of the world.
In 2016, he embarked on a 400-day journey that took him to 23 countries in three continents; some countries included Mexico, Peru, Iran and Georgia. In Zoom, we follow Lao’s camera and discover how his exposure to different countries and their cultures have influenced his perception of Macao.
Lao became a full-time photographer in 2011. His specialty is his ability to capture emotion with his camera. His main photography projects feature the ceremonial events in life, such as pre-wedding and new-born celebrations. He has also worked for the Cultural Affairs Bureau to take photos for the Macao International Parade between 2013 and 2015.
