About the HK photographers:


Both a commercial and fine-art photographer, Chan Dick is best known locally and internationally for the award-winning series “Chai Wan Fire Station”, which records the daily occurrences within the fire station courtyard from above. This series earned him first prize at the Hong Kong Photo Book Awards in 2015, and the Tokyo International Foto Awards in 2016. This series has been selected by Invisible Photographer Asia for showcasing at the 2015 Angkor Photo Festival, and presented at Japan’s 2016 Mount Rokko International Festival. His other works have also been shown at the international photography exhibitions of Hong Kong as well as Pingyao of China.

Chan Dick has held three solo exhibitions to date. His major projects explored socio-political issues within Hong Kong, most notably the 2014 series “No Compromise” that featured documented student activists. This series won him third place in the International Photography Awards (IPA) in the professional editorial/political category. His other series “Dismayland” won in the fine art category of the 2015 International Photography Awards (IPA).


Paul Yeung Tak-ming (b.1978, Hong Kong) graduated with an MA in Image and Communication (Photography) from Goldsmiths College, London in 2011.

His works are collected by The Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Library of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and private collectors.


Doreen, Wing Yan Chan was born in 1987 in Hong Kong. Trained in Visual Communication and photography, her creative outlet brought her to UK, where she joined East Street Arts and held an artist studio in 2010. She currently lives in Hong Kong.

Chan’s daily life is her main interest and inspiration of her creations. Working with images, videos and installations, she draws from various subjects that relate the intricacies of the surrounding environment. Chan is known as an image maker, who believes “Images are just materials for my creations”.

She was invited to hold her first solo exhibition at Lianzhou Foto Festival 2013 and exhibited her works in various spaces in Beijing, Gwangju, Macau, Hong Kong and several cities in England. Chan’s work was selected as one of the 2015 Three Shadows Photography Award Finalists.
