Blindspot Gallery is pleased to present “Hong Kong Stories 1960s”, a solo exhibition showcasing vintage gelatin silver prints from 1960s by the late photographer Yau Leung (1941-1997). Displaying familiar and nostalgic scenes of a bygone era, the photography of Yau Leung documents a rapidly changing Hong Kong spanning the colonial days from 1960s to the year of the handover. His work has long been treasured as an integral part of the visual and cultural memory of Hong Kong. This is the first exhibition of Yau Leung’s early gelatin silver prints since his death, the exhibited works were hand-printed by the artist during the years of the works. This exhibition is organised on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the death of the artist.
