A chance to view “Hong Kong Through Australian Eyes” is available this week at the Anita Chan Lai-ling Gallery at the Fringe Club, in Central, in an event organised by the Australian consulate. The photographic exhibition, which runs until October 29, features the work of four Australians examining their connection to their adopted hometown. For Palani Mohan , who has published several photographic books, including Wind Water (2017), the show is a reflection on more than a decade as a resident of Hong Kong, including a period based on a boat in Aberdeen on the south side of Hong Kong Island: “The colours, sounds and chi of the city came right up to our front door,” says Mohan. “It was a wonderful gift.” Simon Fuller, a video producer, found the city to be an “extraordinary canvas”, driving him to explore its colours and stories through photography. “Hong Kong Through Australian Eyes” is his second exhibition following “Ding Ding”, a collection of photographs capturing the city’s iconic trams . Photojournalist Isaac Lawrence says Hong Kong is “a culturally rich city that is always offering new ways to see it”, and Jayne Russell, who worked as a news photographer in London’s Fleet Street for 18 years, spent time recording the lives of Hong Kong’s “boatpeople”, concerned that “their stories and unwritten history will die with them”. Australia’s consul general, Elizabeth Ward, sees the collection as a celebration of “a connection of long standing, dating back more than 200 years, when the first Cantonese-speaking migrants ventured south seeking new opportunities. Since then, the movement of people in both directions has forged deep people-to-people links between our communities.” “Hong Kong Through Australian Eyes” runs until October 29 at the Anita Chan Lai-ling Gallery, Fringe Club, 2 Lower Albert Road, Central. Admission is free.
