|12 - 28 May, 2011||Impermanence||Norman de Brackinghe has lived in Hong Kong since 1976. He has a background of many years in the graphic arts industry, is a watercolourist of the traditional English school of landscape painting and is a keen student of abstract art movements. His photography reflects the abstract expressionism of the painters he admires: de Staal, Rothko, Stella, Calder, Rauschenberg and others. Norman has held numerous solo exhibitions of his photography in Hong Kong and the UK and has joined many joint exhibitions throughout East Asia. His photographs are widely collected in Hong Kong and overseas. |
|31 May - 18 Jun, 2011||Out of Time||Inspired by the work of Robert Frank, Marc Riboud, Walker Evans and Ansel Adams and drawing on the rich legacy of the Farm Security Administration documentary photographers, Robin Moyer set out on the road in the early 1970’s as a young man with all the enthusiasm of that era. With his VW van packed with cameras, from Leicas to wooden 8x10s, he travelled as far afield as Florida and the Dakotas, and from California to Alaska, seeking out the simple beauty of the countryside, the quirky reality of life in rural America and the classical iconography of nature-as-form. Moyer’s photographs demonstrate a masterful use of light in its various guises: intense, moody, soft, calming and powerful. It is this interplay of light and imagery which raises Moyer’s photographs above the ordinary and his choice of presenting them as platinum prints which creates something truly rare and special.

|1 Aug - 30 Sep, 2011||Yau Leung's Hong Kong||The exhibition presents a collection of photographs of Hong Kong by the famous local photographer, Yau Leung (1941-1997).
Yau Leung is widely regarded as one of Hong Kong's most significant and accomplished documentary photographers. Born in Hong Kong, he devoted himself to photographing street scenes and the daily lives of people in Hong Kong. Drawing stylistically on the great master of documentary photo-journalism, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Yau Leung captured the very soul and essence of Hong Kong. His photographs, nearly all of which are monochrome, are masterpieces of composition and light. His images are compelling as they transport us back to the 1960s.

|24 Nov - 10 Dec, 2011||VIVID HONG KONG||“The best camera in the world, as the saying goes, is the one you have with you. All the images in this book were taken with my iPhone - my one possession that I carry everywhere. Like most iPhone users, initially I treated its camera function as a toy for playing around, for taking pictures of my kids. But quickily I realized my phone could be used to tell stories in a way impossible with conventional camera equipment, the tools that I’ve been using professionally for more than 20 years.”
Palani Mohan, 2011
The exhibition continues until 10 December ||
