In the foreword of the photo album ’89 Tiananmen, Hong Kong photographer Kan Tai Wong said in the summer of 1990, “If a camera is a ‘memory device’, the 63 black and white pictures printed herewith have undoubtedly documented what I have seen and contemplated during the 1989 Beijing democratic movement”.

In the wake of the 25th anniversary of the Beijing student movement, it is both timely and precious to take a look at the recently edited version of the photo album in which the photographer carefully re-examining his negatives, with subsequent highly selected black and white pictures increased to 108, including the enduring images of those youngsters which the photographer refrained from exposure 25 years ago.
