Visit this Photo Exhibition of Hong Kong Signs & Colours which you may miss
Since the passing of Hong Kong’s Buildings Ordinance in 2011, which halted the making of new, large-scale calligraphy or retro neon signboards along the main streets. This is why Justin Wong, a local photographer, has been attempting to document the vanishing scenes of Hong Kong, focusing on the metropolitan life in Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po. Presenting these snapshots in Nostalgic Times, Justin’s works portray fleeting moments as if scenes from a movie, expressing the deepest stories behind each individual photo, by way of both digital and film formats.
Here are some of Justin's work:
