Model experiences the best and worst of the fine (and not so fine) art of photography

It's ironic that just one day after Lynn Xiong Dailin confronted a stalking paparazzo, the model was at the opening of the Lomography exhibition at Times Square talking about how much she enjoyed taking photos.

At the weekend, Xiong was followed by a paparazzo while walking her dog in Stanley with friends.

'I was so scared because he was following me everywhere,' she said on Monday.

'I asked him who he was. He didn't answer but kept saying that he wasn't breaking the law by taking photos. I tried to dodge his camera, but then he called the police and claimed that I'd broken it.' Xiong said the fraught incident had taught her a lesson. 'I'll call the police first if something like this happens again.'

Opening the exhibition - a 20-metre-long wall of about 60,000 pictures taken by analogue film photography buffs - in the Causeway Bay mall, the model said she enjoyed taking photos of herself.

Understandably, Xiong is extra careful with her phone in the wake of a previous high-profile celebrity photo scandal.

'Even though I don't take special photos, I always keep a close eye on my phone wherever I go.'
