To many locals born in Hong Kong in the 60s, Mainland China in the 70s & 80s was so near and yet so far. Although Mainland China was at the doorstep, it was like a land of mystery. I born in the early 60s, was devoted to photography in the late 70s. In the 80s, as a college student majoring in journalism, followed the fad of travelling in China, brought along my camera and kicked off my adventure.
At that time, I had only started photography for three or four years. Notwithstanding that I had limited knowledge about Chinese customs and culture, with my fervent passion, I many a time travelled to Mainland by rail. My adventure lasted occasionally for a few years, till my graduation.
Prior to being digitalised a decade ago, the slides were only stored in storage boxes and not even published. The reappearance of the images inspired my to host a photo exhibition, be it a summary of my young photography life, or as a sharing to young photographers: The photographs you take in your early life, could be the most invaluable ones. Keep up!
