Hong Kong of the past

Share:

The f22 foto space in Hong Kong presents selected works by James Chung (1925-2018). ‘Long Shadows’ features the renowned photographer’s impressions of Hong Kong in the 1950s and 60s – culminating in a nostalgic homage to a changing city.

Chung first settled in Hong Kong in 1947. It was not long before the self-taught photographer received recognition in the form of various distinctions and awards. In 1963, a connection with a film production company led him to becoming a set photographer. In 1968 he established his own photo studio, specialising in portraits. He subsequently worked as the editor-in-chief of the New Wave Photography magazine.

For his achievements in the field of photography, James Chung received an Honorary Fellowship of the Photographic Society of Hong Kong, and a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain. The Hong Kong Heritage Museum is compiling a collection of the late artist’s work.
