Hi Lo is a documentary collective that embraces the spaces where cultures overlap. 

We share untold stories and unexamined perspectives with a compassionate and critical eye, focusing on food culture, education, work, and community. We like good meals in weird places.

Based between New York City and Shanghai,
Hi Lo has extensive experience covering Asia and contemporary culture across the world.

Our group’s multi-lingual, multi-disciplinary background spans journalism, art and design, music, and community activism.
