In 1960, my father bought his first camera. Photography has since been his favourite medium to record the world around him. He is still constantly snapping away with his mobile phone today. His relentlessness of visually recording his life has resulted in a large collection of photographic materials. Looking through them, I was struck by the number of images depicting sites of demolition and construction. In this project, I dived into this vast archive in an attempt to discover hidden narratives about the ever-changing landscape of Hong Kong.


YU Pak Lin (b.1933) started working for Cathay Advertising and McCann-Erickson in the 1960s. Around the same time, he bought his first camera and has never stopped photographing.


Albert YU Ka Ho (b.1970) is an animation and new media artist whose works often employ computer graphics, photography, and digital technology. He is currently a Senior Lecturer at Hong Kong Baptist University.
