Recently, we accidentally found a Facebook Page with a lot of interesting “Old Hong Kong” photos and we would like to share them with you!
This is the Facebook Page, where the photos are all taken by a documentary photographer, Mr. Chung Man Lurk. The Facebook Page is believed to have been created by his son. It has been said in recent years that the Hong Kong of yester-years is still better. We all have our own opinions but as each generation faces different needs and pressures, there isn’t an objective way to compare across different eras.
Regardless, it is fortunate that we have cameras and photos to immortalize the moment in time. They offered our younger generation a chance to glimpse into the Hong Kong of the past, and to understand how folks then dealt with their daily grind in silence.
Everyone might have different definitions of documentary photography, but the one thing that’s for sure is that each of our photos capture the present, and subsequently form part of our memories!

From the 19th century to today, the concept of 'family' has changed over time -- from families born into ones, to the ones we have chosen for ourselves. Photographers then and now have found the basic unit of society an interesting, continuous study.
Loretta Ramos is a TV show producer, recently known for Hannibal, American Gods, and Mockingbird Lane. Not quite as dark are her personal photographs, she likes to take with the Diana F+. We couldn't wait to see what she thinks of our brand new Diana Instant Square and sent her a prototype to test.
In the 1970's, photographer Mike Mandel once stood on a Hollywood sidewalk, with his camera focusing on passerby cars and the people inside them. The results lead to an interesting series of street photography reflecting the attitudes of people while on-the-go.
Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?
