The unspeakable Hong Kong: through the prism of individual, collective and daily objects

13:15 to 15:00
(GMT+01:00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris

Based in Hong Kong and Taiwan, Billy’s work is an inquiry on human, places and identifications in the context of history and the city’s deep rooted power structure. Looking into the emotive as well as the factual contradictions of undermined individual and collectives within a city(s) overwhelmed by capital and commerce, and hopes to connect all people through sharing stories of simple yet exceptional everyday struggles.

Billy H.C. Kwok is a Hong Kong-Taiwan based photographer who began his career as a reporter in newspapers before pursuing his photographic career. He grew up in Hong Kong and witnessed its transition from the British to the Chinese regime, the wealth of stories that are present in the “Pan-Chinese” region and its extended areas have inspired Billy greatly and are reflected in his works.
