It’s hard to walk a block in Hong Kong without seeing someone wielding an enormous DSLR, or angling their smartphone just so to get a good shot. With the advent of mobile phone technology, and with really nice equipment available at a fraction of the price it used to be, pretty much anyone can be a self-taught shutterbug. We’ve rounded up some creative photographers, plus we're giving you the low-down on where to stock up on the newest models and telling you which apps to download.
Everything you need to know about photography in Hong Kong, from the coolest photographers to essential gear.
Putting this all in perspective is "Mi Casa es su Casa," an exhibition by the Society for Community Organization (SoCO), in the subject-appropriate setting of a "tong lau” in Sham Shui Po, a district where urban decay is particularly severe.

On August 1, the Air Pollution Index readings in Hong Kong hit an all-time high, with all three of the city’s roadside air-monitoring stations (located in Mong Kok, Central and Causeway Bay) logging worryingly elevated ratings. When we put out a call for photos to our readers, pictured in this article, we were inundated with shots within moments.
This photograph hangs in the bathroom in my courtyard house in Beijing. It’s very interesting because lots of people don’t get the idea behind it. Lots of Chinese officials came to my house, went to the loo, came out, and had this smile on their face. Because, politically, here is the emperor [Deng Xiaoping], and Zhou Ziyang and Hu Yaobang were both his loyal successors, but he purged them both [dismissed them from their high ranking posts] in 1989.
Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Liu Heung-shing recently released a book including works by 88 Chinese photographers, along with his own, that charted China’s evolution from 1949 up the present. He picked 70 of these photos to show in an exhibition at AO Vertical Art Space. He takes Leanne Mirandilla on a tour of the exhibit.
HK Magazine: What is your design philosophy?
William Lim: Architects have a kind of social obligation to improve urban environments. Architecture is about people. I always feel that architects are only doing maybe half of the job—the other half is really [done by] the occupant using the space. Whatever we do, the design has to be really appropriate for the function of the space. So for each problem, there’s a special way of solving it.
HK: Can you give us an example?
Developed by William Lim and Stanley Wong (anothermountainman), “Journey to Tomorrow” is a series of portraits in which people pose with an object that represents their vision of Hong Kong in 20 years. Lim tells KK Rebecca Lai about the project and his thoughts on architecture.
As a part of the Hong Kong Design Year 2012 program, Hong Kong Photo Book Awards (HKPBA) is calling photographers to compile a photo book that conveys a concept, shares memories, and presents ideas.
This year, the theme for the HKPBA program is “I Love Hong Kong,” and photographers are encouraged to be inspired by the surrounding environment of the city and its people, as well as its natural settings or a mix of all of these.
Hong Kong Photo Book Awards kicks off its first annual program to promote a culture of digital photography in Hong Kong.
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.
Thursday, May 17th will mark the launch of the major monograph, "Tilting the Lens: Telling the Story of Sham Shui Po" by the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).
