Hold your fire, August 7

In his exhibition “The Game is Killing the Game”, photographer David Chancellor offers a unique and often visceral insight into South Africa’s hunting safaris. Hosted by The Salt Yard, an arts space in Kwun Tong, the photo series calls for a reflection on hunting for sport when many species are in decline. It comes as African and US politicians meet in Washington, with conservation high on the agenda. US Interior Secretary Sally Jewell said about 20,000 elephants were slaughtered in Africa last year, while about three rhinos were killed every day in South Africa alone. The free exhibition runs until August 24. Photos: David Chancellor/INSTITUTE
