National Geographic commissioned Carbon to create a series of vignettes for their Oceans Tomorrow series that raise awareness of the ongoing decimation of Hong Kong’s marine life. Each vignette was to bring the story of a National Geographic Explorer based in the city to the forefront, sharing their unwavering commitment to driving positive change and rejuvenating the intricate eco-system that allows underwater life to flourish.
Using innovative land, air, and sea production tools, we captured life from the three primary planes on which all life exists. In the third vignette, we meet journalist Laurel Chor as she investigates how marine pollution has affected Hong Kong’s fishing industry and long-standing seafood culture.
