YESTERDAY HONG KONG - a collection of photographs taken before or around 1997, the same year when Hong Kong was returned to China, since ceded to the Britain in 1842. Selected from the archives of Lee Ka-sing and Holly Lee, the YESTERDAY HONG KONG suite is mainly built around the silver photographs of Hong Kong in the 60s and 70s, taken by three veteran Hong Kong photographers: Yau Leung (1941-1997), Ngan Chun Tung (1927-2005) and Mak Fung (1918-2009). They were represented by Lee Ka-sing during their lifetimes. The collection also extends to the 90s, with additional work by contemporary photographers, and artifacts such as vintage publications and early postcards. Fading memories, changing times, a host of golden-era memorabilia.
「舊香港」 舊者,以1997年為界。1842年英開埠香港,1997年主權重歸中方。舊香港照片集以李家昇及黃楚喬所藏:邱良(1941-1997),顏震東(1927-2005),麥烽(1918-2009)於六十及七十年代所拍攝的原作照片為骨幹。三人生前均為李所代理及發行限量照片。照片集亦兼收所藏較近之攝影師於八、九十年代關於香港的照片,以及相關物如早期香港明信片等。人事流逝,景觀移動,懷念也。
