THE CITY FLÂNEUR
REINTERPRETING HONG KONG DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY

With Public space becoming a hot topic in recent years, maintaining authentic landmark architecture is a vital item on the agenda. Amid the constant evolution, architectural fabric of the cityscape is merely temporary — hence attracting photographer and artists to record these moments in time. Although the master photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908 – 2004) passed away a few years ago, his documentary work continues to inspire many.

The ‘City Flâneur: Social Documentary Photography’ exhibition includes 35 groups of photographers, over 260 images dated from 1950 onwards and divided into four main themes — ‘Street Photography’, ‘Social Documentary Photography’, ‘New Topographics Photography’ and ‘Conceptual and Manipulated Photography’. As Flâneurs, the photographers combine traditional film camera with modern image-manipulating technology to capture an ever-evolving society and the development of Hong Kong documentary photography.
