Hardcover, limited Edition 400.

Chris Wong’s series “Now & Then” documents the many Western-style colonial-era buildings found in Hong Kong. The buildings themselves already a juxtaposed, out-of-place presence against Hong Kong’s modern cityscape, Chris Wong’s photography (instant polaroids!) further heightens the importance of the time axis and accentuates the deep history behind the monuments he captured: “Each frame is a monument to be discovered and preserved. A photo in hand is a ticket to ride on a time machine.”

“These architectural heritage sites live through time and have now become a part of our everyday life in Hong Kong. Sometimes, we slow down, in awe of the aesthetic wonders of architecture defined by detailed space planning, highly skilled craft and creative structural design. Occidental colonial-style buildings put down roots in the Pearl of the Orient. Each place, may it be a barracks, a court house or a church, exudes its own lasting charm.”
