The Road: Photography Exhibition by Tse Ming Chong

On the night of 30th September 2014, veteran Hong Kong photographer Tse Ming Chong took a walk. But this was not an ordinary walk. Through the night, he walked along Hong Kong’s Harcourt Road from Central to Causeway Bay. The ten pairs of images he captured on his journey are testament to one of the most significant social movements in Hong Kong’s recent history, the so-called Umbrella Revolution.

Precisely one year on, Karin Weber Gallery is delighted to stage ‘The Road’, a solo exhibition of Tse Ming Chong’s photo documentations of this unique event. Fresh from the publication of his book ‘Chronicle – A Hong Kong Diary’ which contains a visual journal of Hong Kong over the last quarter century, we ponder what lies ahead for Hong Kong and its people in the aftermath of the Umbrella Movement.

A road is a common metaphor for life. We are never short of signs telling us how far we have travelled, or what lies ahead. But are we taking the right road and making the right decision? The biggest mistake one makes along the road of truth is not going all the way, or not starting at all.

About the Artist
Tse Ming Chong obtained his MA in Image & Communication at Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK. He is currently the Principal Lecturer at Hong Kong Design Institute. Tse’s artistic pursuit started over 25 years ago with his photograph of Mao Zedong’s portrait taken down from Tiananmen Square. He has documented Hong Kong ever since – its change of sovereignty, its evolution as a metropolitan city in China and the effects of ‘One Country, Two Systems’ on its inhabitants. His works are held in the collections of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and the Hong Kong Film Archive.
