Twin Peaks: Contemporary Hong Kong Photography

Hong Kong Heritage Museum
1/F
4 October 2014 - 3 November 2014

Presented by the Hong Kong Photographic Culture Association
A partnership project of the Hong Kong Photographic Culture Association and the Hong Kong Heritage Museum of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department


An artist must be prepared to overcome various difficulties to achieve new goals. In the path of creation, Hong Kong contemporary photographers have to think out of the box to reach a higher level in all aspects of their art. The various outstanding images they have captured constitute the diversity and uniqueness of Hong Kong's photographic domain.

Nine stunning artists, including anothermountainman, Martin Cheung & Topaz Leung, Almond Chu, Joseph Fung, Leo K.K. Wong, Ng Sai-kit, Ringo Tang and Vincent Yu, will feature their two disparate groups of photographs, demonstrating two separate approaches to photographic art, which explains the exhibition title, Twin Peaks. In this exhibition, we aim not only to display the artists' remarkable achievements, but also delve into the evolutionary progress of their artistic concepts and the technique used to create their works of art.
