Presented by Hong Kong Photo Festival 2012
A partnersh ip project of the Hong Kong International Photo Festival 2012 and the Hong Kong Heritage Museum of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department
< br /> One of the programmes in the Hong Kong International Photo Festival\, this exhibition also forms part of a survey of contemporary photography in Hong Kong\, Japan and South Korea. Seeking to develop an overview of Hong Kong photography in the early years of the 21st century\, it hig hlights a new trend among young photographers who are rejecting traditional approaches to produce fresh and exciting work.

Over the last t wo decades\, more and more photographers in Hong Kong have moved away from the ‘straight photography’ that has dominated the pursuit of this art since the 1980s. At the same time\, an increasing number of artists who previous ly trained in other disciplines have taken up photography as their medium o f expression and are creating works that rely on concept rather than subjec t or style.

The exhibition features sixteen groups of photograp hs created by artists who are establishing a new art scene for Hong Kong co ntemporary photography through their different approaches to creation.
