Hong Kong Stories 1960s – original vintage prints by Yau Leung

28 Nov 2017 - 6 Jan 2018

“Hong Kong Stories 1960s” is a solo exhibition showcasing vintage gelatin silver prints by the late photographer Yau Leung (1941-1997). Displaying familiar and nostalgic scenes of a bygone era, the photography of Yau Leung documents a rapidly changing Hong Kong spanning the colonial days from 1960s to the year of the handover. His work has long been treasured as an integral part of the visual and cultural memory of Hong Kong. This is the first exhibition of Yau Leung’s vintage gelatin silver prints since his death, where all prints were hand-printed by the artist. This exhibition is also organised on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Yau’s death.
