Typhoon Mangkhut

On September 16, while we patiently waited inside for the black rain and violent winds of typhoon Mangkhut to pass – talking, cooking, painting and unpacking instruments all day – many of Hong Kong’s buildings, roads and trees faced severe destruction. The authorities had issued Hurricane Signal 10 for this strongest of this year’s tropical cyclones. Many of us had never experienced a storm of such force. All photos by Florian Geisseler.
