Tenement houses in Wing Lee Street were built in the 60’s. Here preserves the scene 50 years ago.
Tenement houses in Wing Lee Street demonstrate the typical Hong Kong street scenery in 60’s. It locates at Mid-levels, Central. Walking up from the Central business district, along the slope, you will see the old street after turning around a long staircase. Every little details are illustrating the life in 60 to 70’s, just like the carved gate of shops, the balcony, clothes drying poles….
Urban Renewal Authority planed to redevelop the area, keeping only 3 buildings and demolishing the rest. In the 60th Berlin Film Festival, a local film “Shui Yuet Sun Tau” was awarded with “Crystal Bear (Kplus)”. The story centers on the life of 60 to 70’s Hong Kong people, which background is Wing Lee Street. After the film won this international prize, it raised a big noise in society. The majority asked for retaining this valuable street. Finally the authority excluded Wing Lee Street in the renewal project. All tenement houses are preserved, as well as 50 years of time. The classic street scenery continues.

One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
