Guided tour with the artists : Saturday 10 September, 2-4pm
Boogie Woogie Photography & PhotogStory are pleased to present "My Hong Kong, 我城," a group exhibition at the Loft Wong Chuk Hang, from 3 September to 15 October 2022.
Every city has its own story to tell. In a vibrant and bustling city like Hong Kong, more stories are yet to be told. Boogie Woogie Photography and PhotogStory share the same passion for photography and fondness for this city. Photography brought us together, and we are thrilled to curate this exhibition, "My Hong Kong, 我城," comprising thirteen Hong Kong and international photographers' artworks about the city.
Everyone sees and feels the city from their perspective. People who have been to Hong Kong at different ages always have a reason to fall in love with the city. On display are Raymond Cauchetier and James Chung's cityscapes from the 1950s, as well as young talents' impressions of Hong Kong.
Under the lens of James Chung and French photographer Raymond Cauchetier, there is street scenery full of Chinese characters, reflecting people's simple life at that time. Even though Chung and Cauchetier lived in different worlds, they had similar fates. Both were self-taught photographers and recorded Hong Kong's street scene nearly seventy years ago. Later, they became set photographers respectively for Hong Kong Films and the French New Wave in the 1960s. Their photographs left a critical testimony of the golden era.
Hong Kong is a charismatic city. Whether in the movies or the reality, this place always attracted and fascinated visitors. The exhibition not only presents the city's past and present but also embraces the city's diversity through the photographers' eyes. We hope the audiences can arouse unique memories of the city in the "My Hong Kong, 我城" exhibition.
