LO Kin Man
About
Born in Guangdong, Lo Kin Man moved to Hong Kong with his family at the age of five in 1992. In 2012, he picked up a camera for the first time to take photos on his hike near Ping Shek Estate where he lives. He then launched the Facebook pages “moviesfeeding” and “The Hiking Supplements”, sharing his passion for photography and outcry for the conservation of local country parks. Mid-May, 2018 was the last time he went on a hike, taking photos and picking up litter along the way.

Overview



How do the photographs of a hardcore-environmentalist-hiker reflect his ideas of Hong Kong in its current climate? Lo Kin Man documented his journey, which took him through Kowloon Peak in 2012, last image of it taken in 2018, across all 18 districts, up the foggy heights of Victoria Peak, then down to the depths of Mongkok. The resultant work, through the process of hiking and a prolonged documentation, in turn became an archive of visual records of the city. Perhaps these images can break new grounds for the reimagined Hong Kong communities.
