How do we "see" Hong Kong. What images endear or repeal us to this city. Whether you're from here or new to these shores, Hong Kong has some of the most interesting cityscapes imaginable. Most of us simply "snap" photos on our phones while hanging out with friends or waiting for a bus but wouldn't it be great to tell a story with all these "random" photos? Wouldn't it be interesting if we could curate our own street photography?
Those of you on Instagram may have seen a feed related to Hong Kong called "Stuff I Saw Yesterday...". Stuff... is a quirky slice-of-life Instagram feed containing photographs taken by architect and photographer Austin Tang. Austin uses his mobile phone to snap photos of all the curious and unique scenes that he sees through his daily life. Every day those of us who watch his feed see the sacred, the mundane, and the downright bizarre in one big rolling take. Recently, Austin has produced a book of photographs and has graciously offered to share with Hong Kong Sacred Spaces Society members some of the techniques he uses to observe and document Hong Kong.
We'll gather for a hour-long walking tour of the Sai Ying Pun neighborhood stopping at rearranged locations where he'll demonstrate how he takes his photographs and help us to "see" Hong Kong through his unique style of street photography.
This event is FREE of charge but is reserved for Hong Kong Sacred Spaces Society Members Only. Society Membership is separate from Meetup and requires that you complete a membership form and pay an annual $100 membership fee. Please click here for details. To check out Austin's feed can be seen here.
Please note that Austin will have copies of his book.
