Leo K. K. Wong: Beyond Senses, Beyond Colours
Time Out says
Former physician-turned-photographer Leo K. K. Wong presents his spectacular photographs spanning 50 years using old-school film cameras
Leo K. K. Wong, who graduated with a degree in Medicine in 1959 and worked as a physician until 2006, may not fit the profile of a typical photographer. Also uncommon in this day and age is his devotion to old-school film cameras, as he believes they have the ability to create an irreplaceable sense of color and motion.
For this solo exhibition, Wong demonstrates how his photo-taking has evolved in the past 50 years. It features 14 black-and-white shots taken in the 1960s-70s that revolve around daily life and social phenomena, as well as 35 coloured photographs from the 1980s-2010s that are centered around nature. Come witness Wong’s photographic reinterpretation of traditional Chinese paintings at Kwai Fung Hin Art Gallery this July.
