Abandoned TV studio, Hong Kong


Red, green, blue- the three colours of the logo of the TV broadcasters.

This was a TV studio owned by a rich family called Lam in Hong Kong. They had been renting the place to one of the TV broadcasters for filming and dubbing TV programmes.

The TV broadcaster later films at other studio and since then the studio has been abandoned, more than 10 years.

7 years ago, it is said that the studio would be torn down and luxury residential buildings would be built. But today the studio still stands there, but not lonely, with a security guard at the main entrance.

By the way, the business of the broadcaster has been running worse and worse in recent years and some Chinese rich guy has invested in it, turning it even worse- it has become a tool to promote Chinese government. Many Hongkongers stopped watching its channels and are waiting the broadcaster to go bankrupt and close down.

1st floor. It is empty, with only graffiti.

Switches in abandonments always interest me.
2nd floor. The reflection completes the art.

I like the colours.
