This is a remarkable collection of images by Mak Fung, one of the most prominent and acclaimed photographers yet to emerge from Hong Kong. As well as being a practitioner of the art, Mak was a technical and philosophical innovator, writing prolifically on photography and serving as executive editor for Photoart and Photo Pictorial of Hong Kong. He was also an Honorary fellow of the Chinese Photographic Association and Asian Photographic Association of Singapore. Hong Kong/China Photographers Five - Mak Fung focuses on the photographer’s early documentarystyle portrayals of the city and the daily lives of its ordinary people. Conversely, Mak’s portraits of cinema stars reveal much about the glamour of a bygone era in Hong Kong.
