Johnny Li, Eric Liu

Urbex on Cheung Chau

Eric Liu
Eric, a local who outlives the British colonisation, spent over 10 years in the world of city exploration upon his graduation, when he stumbled upon some glorious images of various abandoned sites in Hong Kong online. The changes that time brings to these sites in different eras are what Eric strives to capture, before they go down in history. That’s why he always keeps his camera handy, snapping whatever he sees fit, trusting these ordinary photos will be archivally valued one day.


Johnny Li
Johnny enjoys calling himself an intrepid zommer! With a degree in journalism, the reporter-turned-photographer is also an expert in city exploration, Japanese Railway as well as Canton Pop, who also finds peace of mind when getting creative with words. Despite his bravery, he feels more comfortable away from the limelight behind the lens; “good wine needs no bush” perfectly depicts him as he swims against the tide in the mainSTREAM. To him, resonance lies beyond prevalence.

Join our furry friends on their Peng Chau adventures.

Sheeta Ng: I have been living in Peng Chau as an Islander for over 3 years. I have searched different places to find a home that truly belongs to me, and finally, over three years ago, I established a little haven here with Wang Wang. I enjoy taking walks by the sea in Tung Wan and listening to the sound of the waves.

Wang Wang: A 12-years old dog, who came from the city and moved to Peng Chau. He enjoys walking at harbour front, and beach and thinks he is very adorable.

Cindy Tai: I moved to Peng Chau with husband, Sam Tse (a comic artist) 1 year ago. We lived in a space, WELL WELL WELL located on the main street Wing On Street. We are exploring the documentation of Peng Chau culture through various art forms.

Xoey: A 1-year-old black Mongrel girl, curious and a bit active. She was adopted by Peng Chau home since 6-week old. Although she walks along the harbor front 2-3 times a day, there is still something new for her to explore every day!

Trista Ma: Trista lives in Peng Chau and Tokyo, she is a visual artist, film maker and performer.
