The most densely populated place on Earth

Up until 1992, when it was demolished, Kowloon Walled City was the most densely populated place on Earth. A slapdash construction following no rules or architectural insights, the sprawling mass housed over 50,000 inhabitants on just a few blocks. These ramshackle constructions look like a dreary vision for a sci-fi movie, but they were very real.

Canadian photographer Greg Girard worked with Ian Lamboth over the span of five years to get to know the city’s inhabitants and photograph their unique living environment. The result is an astonishing glimpse into the daily lives of the people living in these extraordinary circumstances.
