Hong Kong in the Sixties – Photographs by Yau Leung at 3/F, Landmark
Thursday, June 18, 2009
From now until 31st August, 2009, Picture This proudly present the work of Yau Leung, one of Hong Kong’s most notable photographers, at 3/F, The Landmark.
Yau Leung (1941-1997) is widely regarded as one of the most important and accomplished documentary photographers active in Hong Kong from the 1960’s to the 1990’s. In a style deeply reminiscent of his Western contemporaries Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Frank, he captured the very essence of the City through his evocative images of its people and streets. Almost exclusively working in black and white, his sharp eye and deft hand captured some of the most iconic photographic images of 1960’s Hong Kong.
All photographs are available for purchase. For click here for more details.
