First edition launch on Hong Kong Photobook Fair on 29th - 31st, April, 2019. 

Photo Book Description

A historic building is a legend of one’s own time. A trace of it is left and gets exposed on an instant photo. Each frame is a monument to be discovered and preserved. A photo in hand is a ticket to ride on a time machine. Travelling between different points along the timeline, we re-witness moments in history. When the past and present are juxtaposed, humans cannot help but respond with contemplations and a sense of nostalgia.

Now and Thenis a personal documentary on occidental colonial-style buildings in Hong Kong.Each place, may it be a barracks, a court house or a church, exudes its own lasting charm. What if we slow down and listen to the stories of these timeless aesthetics.

攝影書簡介

殖民地古蹟在歲月中沉澱,於即時顯影照片留下足印,有待我們發掘、感受和保存。手執照片,霎時在時間軌跡裏穿梭往返,百年來幾多人事變遷,前麈片段頓現眼前。在一磚一瓦一樑一檐間,彌漫着建築的靈和美,感今懷昔,古今共賞。 

《今日昔日》承載對香港舊西方建築的情懷和紀錄。從軍營、法院以至教堂,昔日的不朽美學,在今天急促的城市節奏中,留待你我駐足品嚐。
