In order to enhance friendly exchanges of the art of photography between Malaysia and Hong Kong, SGM and the Photography Society of Malaysia are jointly organizing the exhibition “Photo Impressionism – A Photographic Exhibition by LEO Wong K.K.” Dr. Wong is a renowned salon photographer, presently holding the position of Honorary President of the Photographic Society of Hong Kong, Honorary President of the Photographic Salon Exhibitor’s Association, Hong Kong and Senior Member of British Royal Photography Association. He won the first prize in the international salon competition four times and is an acclaimed photographer internationally. He is particularly skilled in taking landscape photography and is highly regarded in the milestone of China’s history of photography.
Dr. Wong was touched and encouraged by a seven-year-old visitor to one of his exhibitions who wrote in the guest book: “I didn’t know nature is so beautiful. I will protect it even more in the future.” Since then, he has been even more immersed in nature. Each frame and each photograph in this collection represents a personal response to the fleeting light and shade. He therefore dedicates this series of exhibits to the young friends, with the hope that one day they will experience first-hand the joy of commuting with nature through lenses.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Dr. Leo Wong will be delivering an art talk, sharing his thoughts and discoveries in his life of photography. The details of the art talk are as follows:
At the same time, there will be another photographic exhibition entitled “Transcending Boundaries to Glory – The Photographic Society of Malaysia 55th Anniversary Exhibition” which will be held on the 7th floor during the same exhibition period. In commemorating the 55th anniversary of The Photographic Society of Malaysia, members of the society will exhibit 100 pieces of their works at Wisma Kebudayaan SGM to celebrate the significant occasion. Since the inception of PSM in 1956, more than half a century ago, members of the Society have acted as flag bearers of the people’s culture, continuing to spread the art of photography far and wide. All are welcome to view the exhibition.
There will be side activities during the exhibition period, detailed information as follows:
