Blue Lotus Gallery: HK UNSEEN
Things might end but memories last forever. The story of Hong Kong is one of almost constant change. Some say the golden era of the 80s is the most memorable: the streets full of traffic, endless streams of people, many working hard to make a living while youth stroll past with innocent smiles… All of this under the yellow haze of a simple yet playful atmosphere, captured by Greg Girard’s lens.
“I first visited Hong Kong in 1974, and made several later visits in the 1970s and early 1980s, before moving to the city in 1982. Most of the photographs were made before I became a professional photographer, and show the Hong Kong I explored without any thought to how the pictures might be seen or where they might end up.”
Blue Lotus Gallery is honoured to present HK UNSEEN, the first solo exhibition of Girard’s old photographs of Hong Kong, an exclusive showcase of unpublished work sure to quench the thirst of his cult following! Not only a retrospective of a bygone era, HK UNSEEN represents a new nostalgia.
