On a journey into Hong Kong’s past, renowned Hong Kong historian Cheng Po Hung will take us through the exhibition of early photographic images: Pictures of the Past: Hungarian Photographer Dezső Bozóky in Hong Kong 1908.

In an ever more developed Hong Kong, Hungarian Photographer Dezső Bozóky’s beautiful black-and-white and hand-coloured pictures of the past present historic documents that offer insights into the bustling merchant town, cultural mixed society and lush natural landscape that Bozóky encountered. With scarcer photographic material at hand, Bozóky’s images displayed a foreign world to his compatriots at home where they formed an enormous treasure trove of information in Budapest of the early 1900s and do, indeed, do so today.
