About the event

Cheung Chau is full of spectacular yet lesser-known corners. Many distinctive features are well conserved given its geographical advantage from the hustle and bustle, carrying vital evidence of the development of this lovely land. Eric and Johnny, co-authors of Empty City as well as Cheung Chau locals, will unveil the mysterious side of the island with you while tracing down the vestige of the dated culture engraved here.

Eric Liu, Johnny Li

Eric Liu: 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: 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.
