“Nine Lives”, a photo exhibition by one of the most acclaimed Hong Kong-born photojournalists, Vincent Yu, will feature a selected body of works by Yu from his newly-published “hong kong/china photographers nine”, a photo book comprising images from nine different news assignments undertaken by Yu over the years as a news photographer work for the Associated Press.
Yu’s career in news and documentary photography has spanned over three decades during which he has covered some of the most important and historic news events across the Asia-Pacific region. If press photography serves as cultural documents of our social and political history, then Yu, like many fellow photojournalists, are revelators of truth to spectators in distant lands. The temperament communicated through Yu’s imageries provides a stark contrast to the economic transformation many of these places have undergone. Armed with objective and subjective awareness, Yu’s works extend beyond symbolism and cover illustrative aspects of this photography genre.
Yu’s latest “hong kong/china photographers nine” is the ninth-part of a photo book series published by Hong Kong-based Asia One Books that feature works of Hong Kong’s most esteemed photographers of different genres.
