So, I’m in the midst of preparing for a solo photography exhibition, to be held on campus.
And experimenting with various papers I’ve collected.
Photographs on mobile phone/tablet/computer screens are not the same as print photographs.
The materiality of photography is a fascinating thing indeed.
Some printing mistakes, and a few books that inspire me.
I’m teaching an MA course on social media, photography and writing, so many ideas are floating around in my head even as I’m prepping for the exhibition.
It’s all coming together … photography, literature, critique.
Nietzsche, Foucault, etc., have asked that question – how can we live our lives deliberately, such that our lives become works of art?

I am a poet and an educator. I have come to realise in recent years that the act of writing poetry has trained my mind to be always on the prowl for everyday moments that might be suitable material for my writing.
Hence, I turn to photography in order to record some of these moments. I soon discover that the photographs I am taking, using film rangefinder cameras which are more discreet and hence suitable to the task at hand, are in the tradition of street photography.
In search of poetry, I have become a street photographer.
What can Hong Kong teach me about street photography, and what can street photography teach me about Hong Kong?
This blog seeks to address that question.

Some good books there! 🙂
Good luck with your exhibition. Look forward to see your work.
wow, when and where is this exhibition? I want to see – and can I also invite my boss from where I’m working now? he’s an academic and transdisciplinary artist who also does photography and other forms of visual art. good luck with the exhibition!
Absolutely! I’ll post the details here later on.
When is the exhibition? Might be in town!
It’s on campus, at the Chinese University of HK, from 5 Nov to 4 Dec. Will post the announcement here later. You’ll be most welcome!
How easy it is to forget today how little time photography has not routinely had a physical, tangible result: the print. Break a leg with your show!
Good luck with the exhibition!
Good luck with the exposition!
