Common virtues associated with firefighters- bravery and selflessness can easily be found in press images, but less is known about the everyday life of firemen in their territory- fire station. Capturing daily scenes at Chai Wan fire station with a fresh perspective, photographer Chan Dick presents his engaging photography series Chai Wan Fire Station in a box set of 40 prints. Combining the play of forms, real “props” and a calm, muted tone, the box set is a highly collectible one for lovers of photography and admirers of firefighters.
Chan Dick is the winner of the 3rd Hong Kong Photo Book Awards and his works have been widely covered by various TV programmes, photo magazines and blogs internationally. For more information, please visit http://www.chandick.hk.
