Chan Wai-Kwong is back with another brilliant capture of Hong Kong.
Shot over the past five to seven years, the photographs in “Hong Kong” capture the Asian megacity through streetsnaps, impromptu portraits, close-ups and other methods. Chan Wai-Kwong has demonstrated his outstanding talent to create visual condensations of his life and its many facets (not shying away from the sexual aspects) before, and, if anything, his 2020 Hong Kong series proves that he has no intention of slowing down.
This photobook focuses on Hong Kong’s Kowloon area. Each copy is handmade and signed by the artist. Color of cord used in the book’s binding may be red.
“I publish the photographs because I shot them. I publish them because they’re good. They have to be published because it’s me who took them.” — Chan Wai-Kwong
