Stinky, wet and often bloody...that’s what immediately comes to mind when one thinks of a wet market in Asia. In his second self-published photo book, Thain Lin Tay takes us through a journey to the wet and narrow lanes of Mong Kok’s open-air wet markets, capturing the cacophony of human chatter and vivid everyday scenes of the common Hong Kong people with his camera.
