The University Museum and Art Gallery of The University of Hong Kong, and The University of Hong Kong Museum Society jointly present an exhibition “Celebrations: Photographic works by members of the HKU Museum Society” as part of the University’s centenary celebration.
On display are one hundred photographic works selected from nearly 800 entries submitted by the Society’s members. Organized and judged in three categories – Landscape Symphony, Melodies of Life and The Sound of Silence, the selection was made by a jury panel consisting of three renowned photographers: Dr. Leo K K Wong, Chairman of Min Chiu Society and recipient of the HK Government Bronze Bauhinia Star for achievement in photographic art; Dr Wong How Man, President of China Exploration and Research Society; and Mr Carsten Schael, President of the Hong Kong Institute of Professional Photographers.
The exhibits mainly depict the travels of the Society’s members, offering their personal reflections and vivid views of the world in “celebration” at home and abroad. This volume is the exhibition catalogue published by the Society.
