The biennial celebratory occasion for photographic art, the fourth Hong Kong International Photo Festival 2016 (HKIPF), will take place from 6 August through November this year.
On a laid-back tram amid the city’s hurly-burly, the preview of two major exhibitions – “1000 Families”, “What Do You Want For Tomorrow?” and other HKIPF 2016 programmes will take place. The discrepancies between “speed” and “slowness”, and “present” and “future”, precisely echo this year’s theme “Infinite Universe”. Chairman of Hong Kong International Photo Festival, Alfred Ko Chi Keung, considers a “Kaleidoscopic World” as all living things in a vast, boundless world of pandemonium. From this year’s highlighted exhibitions “1000 Families” and “What Do You Want For Tomorrow?” to “World Press Photo 2016”, the artists, media and subject matters involved are multifarious. They all put questions to the limits of photography in various ways.
Exhibits include the 1000 selected and winning pieces from “Photoeat Competition” from last year, as well as over a thousand pieces by 13 local and overseas photography artists, namely Masashi Asada (Japan), Chan Dick, Doreen Chan, Ven. Chang Lin, Chan Kwok Chung, John Choy, Chu Tak Wah Almond, Ho Fan, Lai Ho Yin Franz, Lau Chi Chung, Dick Lau, Joe Lau, Yang Shaoming (China). All these works construct the foundation of “1000 Families”.
