Share this article on

One of the most celebrated photographers in Hong Kong mesmerised the crowds who came to watch him give a special talk at theDesk on Thursday March 16. Chak Wai Leung visited our co-working and events space in Sai Ying Pun and gave a two-hour talk on his art, his background and what our city used to be like more than half a century ago. The black-and-white photos, many dating back to the 1960s, that he displayed on our big screen were impressive, as was the time and effort he took to tell the story behind each picture. It was a rare opportunity to learn from one of Hong Kong’s most celebrated masters of photography. Some of Chak’s photos are on the walls at theDesk as part of our exhibition that celebrates the SAR’s Arts Month, ‘Hong Kong: Reflections Through Time’. Two other artists are featured in the display and one of them, Wing Luk Wong, held a packed art jam at our venue on Friday March 10. The final artist of the trio, Jeremy Cheung, who has more than 50,000 followers on Instagram, is completing our dedicated March art events programme by heading up a talk at our space on Friday March 24, between 7pm and 8pm. It’s called ‘The Art of Instagram’ and the young photographer is going to outline his ‘Instagram journey’ and talk about the benefits and challenges of posting art pieces on social media. Please RSVP at marketing@thedesk.com.hk if you’d like to come. For details, see the Facebook event page.
