The ever-changing landscape of urban spaces and social phenomena that are part and parcel of city life are popular subjects among photographers. Capturing these transforming images on film, an eclectic group of lensmen and women have given impetus to the art of social landscapes within the tradition of documentary photography. Like flaneurs (city wanderers) in other genres, they focus their cameras on social vistas related to travel and living and, through the images they capture, reflect upon the causes of change in the community and its environs, sometimes even offering their own commentary and critique.
"Hong Kong Photography Series: City Flaneur -- Social Documentary Photography" Exhibition showcases works by various artists, dating from the 1950s to the present day.
At the exhibition, if you (1) take photo(s) with our Exhibition Models, (2) share the photo(s) on social media and, (3) like the Facebook Page of the Committee on the Promotion of Civic Education (CPCE), you will have a chance of receiving a souvenir! Offer is valid while stocks last.
