Wing WongHong Kong
Wing Wong was born in Hong Kong in 1964 and studied art photography in Arizona during the mid-80s. After obtaining his diploma he returned to his homeland and started to work as a freelance photographer. In 2006 Wong quit all his commercial photography jobs and re-erected a traditional darkroom for himself. Since then he has concentrated exclusively on art photography. All his frames were shot on film and hand-printed on gelatin silver paper by Wing Wong himself.
"Hong Kong is a city by the sea; under British rule, it was transformed from a fishing village to a commercial city. When China took it back in 1997 it became a financial center. Things have changed a lot. But to me, the city’s 'by the sea' mood has not changed a bit. I have been working on this series since 2006 and it's still expanding..."
