Leung Hui Wah (1937-2012) is a Hongkonger devoted to local travel. Leung had taken numerous photographs on his journeys. Sixty of them, all employing a distant perspective, are selected for two episodes of exhibition at the Sun Museum. This episode features rural Hong Kong in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Some of the sceneries remain, some were gone forever. Nonetheless, viewers can traverse the tranquil landscapes through Leung’s lens, stay away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a moment of spiritual transcendence. These photographs are indeed Leung’s landscape paintings.
