This book is published in conjunction with Edward S. T. Ho’s first solo exhibition of his watercolour paintings at the Exhibition Gallery of Hong Kong City Hall in March 2013. Entitled ‘Watercolour Journey’, these are images of mostly far off places in Mr. Ho’s travels.

“I have been fortunate to have a group of friends who like to travel with me to fairly exotic places, to Africa, the Middle East, South America, the Antarctic and countries such as India, Iran, Jordan, Sri Lanka and Bhutan. Images of these places have provided me with interesting subjects for my paintings and wonderful mementos of my journeys. I wish to share those memories with my friends once again, and also with those who also enjoy seeing new places and experiencing different cultures.”

Edward S. T. Ho is an architect. He graduated from the University of Hong Kong with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture. He is Group Chairman of the architectural firm of Wong Tung & Partners Limited, and has worked on many prestigious projects in Hong Kong, China Mainland and the United States.
