Summary of Project:

“The first volume of the extensive Hong Kong Photographers series, this book portrays So Hing-keung’s fascinating career as Hong Kong’s ‘photographer-explorer’. So’s major photographic series of the past two decades – Reflections on China, Still Night, This Mortal Coil: Alienated Urban Landscape, South China Portraits and Transformation of Matter – are presented in detail, giving the reader a deep insight to a photographer of unique sensitivity. From his explorations of pre-1997 British colonial rule to the post-1997 Special Administrative Region, from his physical surroundings to his inner psyche, from colour to monochrome, So leads viewers on a visual and spiritual journey. His search for images is also the metaphoric search for a deeper meaning, for identity and existence, experienced by every soul.”
