Books, photography, and food for thought! Join the Artist Talk at Eslite Bookstore tomorrow and discover your own passion for photography while you engage in the talks led by local photographers South Ho and Chan Wai Kwong.
This Wednesday’s Artist Talk is curated by Liu Qing Ping. Ping states that photography, today, is the extension of emotion and our five senses. Photography is not only a “memory chip” but also a tool for one to respond to life and death. Photography can be a creative outlet, a way of life, an mode of observation, a tool of learning. It’s also a hobby. People collect “time” in precious moments. And who among us doesn’t like to bide time? While fleeting moments are all around us, those we capture with the simple click of a shutter can be perserved. Cased in our online photo-albums and shared with hundreds with the tab of a button. However, how about enjoying these blown-up photos in a tangible, non-permanent, display that is a photography exhibit? After all, nothing is permanent.
The artist talks at the Eslite Bookstore aim to meld “exhibition” with live discussion. What better way to interpret an artwork with it’s conceptualizer and creator beside you to walk you through it, and answer any questions you might have. Among the artists talking at the event are South Ho and Chan Wai Kwong. The topic is “An Imaginary City”, to which the photographers will respond to. Both South Ho and Chan Wai Kwong will showcase their black and whites. And while their film coloring is the same, their styles and ideas about Hong Kong are different.
Remember to stop by the Eslite Foucs on the 8th floor to view the photography exhibit on display.
