Description

Fantastic view of the island of Hong Kong, from a series of images based on a famous New Yorker cover and providing a humorous view of how Hong Konger's view themselves

Centered on the many high-rise buildings of the city, the rest of the world seems tiny when seen from Hong Kong. China occupies only a small portion of the map, and the USSR, Alaska, Canada, and Australia are all distant.

The present view is one of a large series of images that riffed on the Steinberg concept while substituting other American and worldwide cities. Steinberg's original work has been the subject of almost-countless parodies, including one for the release of Moscow on the Hudson by Columbia Pictures, which resulted in a copyright infringement lawsuit. Each city appears to have been depicted by a different, likely local, artist.
