Similar to Greek photographer Anthimos Ntagkas, Edas Wong likes to play in the streets with a camera. Only, Wong primarily does it on the other side of the world — Hong Kong.
His playful shots cleverly utilize both the foreground and background. In many cases, it's even hard to tell which of them is the cornerstone of the image; whether it's a man in front of a poster that gives him a Goku haircut or someone walking with shoes that look just like the fish painted on the ground, the dance between the two is often what makes the image.

Wong started dabbling in street photography in 2012. "The reason why I chose this particular type of photography as opposed to any other is quite simple, actually," he told Bored Panda. "I didn't need to learn an advanced technique or have expensive gear; just my small camera. Ideal for a beginner."
Wong approaches the whole process as a somewhat meditative experience. "In order to take a memorable street photo, I try to empty my mind as much as possible and really concentrate on the street itself."
Being present and immersing himself in the area allows Wong to spot even the smallest details and capture events as they unfold, such that cannot be foreseen and take place in only a split second.
"When I am shooting, it's all instinctual, I do not plan my shots," Wong said. "I just go out there and enjoy everything around me."
