Let’s Get Lost is a special collaborative art book by Whitespace and photographer Dan Pak and featuring Hong Kong celebrity model, Ana R.
Two parallel stories take place in Let’s Get Lost. A photographic one that follows the story of a girl, Ana R., through moments of solitude as she makes her way through a journey that explores the intrinsic need for a deeper human connection in Hong Kong — a city that is constantly busy yet so often detached. The other is a story constructed from graphic lines and shapes that float beneath the surface of every page in a French-fold book created by Whitespace. The rhythm of the photographic images on each page is echoed in a series of chaotic yet carefully balanced forms.
Together, Let’s Get Lost tells a story of loneliness and isolation in a city where the feeling of drifting is often unrecognized and overlooked due to the constant barrage of human contact. In a city like Hong Kong, one is seemingly never alone. It’s about being a stranger in a strange place, but also about finding meaningful connections and a space of one’s own, whether real or imaginary, free or confined.
