Hear the behind the scenes stories of Marcel Heijnen’s latest book project: Hong Kong Garage Dogs!

Grittier than Shop Cats and Market Cats, Dutch photographer Marcel Heijnen explores another quirky aspect of Hong Kong’s culture in Garage Dogs. The dogs’ gruffer yang to his cats’ fluffier yin reveal an unapologetically masculine world of car parts, engine grease and tough love. The dry humoured haikus by Grace Chia translate the telepathic messages between owner and guard dog, the human-canine bond that has made dogs man’s best friend for centuries. Shot during the Year of the Dog, follow Marcel’s journey through the city’sback streets to meet these loyal security personnel, paid in, lunchbox leftovers and the occasional tummy rub.

You can purchase your books at the event and have them specially signed and inscribed by Marcel Heijnen!

This is a free event.
