This monograph was born from the collaborated effort from undergraduates, graduates and professors after the SCAD campus opened in Sham Shui Po in 2010 as a way to get to know the College’s new surroundings. This project unveils insight into one of the oldest and poorest districts in Hong Kong.
Originally a fishing village, Sham Shui Po remains one of the most interesting neighborhoods as it has a mix old and new world with 19th-century temples and towering skyscrapers right next to each other.
Combined from over 200 effervescent images, detailed shots and sweeping photographic spreads, parts of Hong Kong’s iconic heritage from the tong laus (low rise residential buildings), dai pai dongs, pawnshops, bonesetters and hawker Markets are also showcased.
The Launch will take place on Thursday, May 17 between 6-8pm at the Art HK VIP club lounge, 1/F Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, 1 Expo Drive, Wan Chai. RSVP to RSVP@occhk.com or call Michelle Lee at 2523-7666.
