HONG KONG.- Sun Museum
is presenting an exhibition, entitled CHO Kam Chow Larry: Capturing the Glamour of Lights, from 17 December 2019 to 7 March 2020. On display are 60 photographs taken by Hong Kong amateur photographer Larry Cho. The artworks record his recent visit to various heritage sites in Henan province of China. Through his camera, he has created a world that is colourful, glamourous, and pleasing to the eye.
After graduating from high school, Larry has pursued a career in the banking industry. Since his move to Australia in 1993, he has fully devoted to photography and took some hundred thousand photographs during his travels around the world. His calm and meticulous personality enables him to create a different world through his lens.
The artworks on display were all taken during Larrys travel to Henan where he visited various popular tourist attractions in Zhengzhou, Kaifeng, Dengfeng, Luoyang and Sanmenxia. Yet Larry likes to capture lighting effect in his works. Whether it is the ceiling of an architecture or the nightscape of the city, he can always find an interesting angle to present a pleasant view.
Mr. Yeung Chun Tong, Director of Sun Museum, remarked, Larrys style of photography is to present the truth instead of modifying photos into abstract adaptations. His objective is to express genuine emotions and his own experience of the sceneries. His works often demonstrate the contrast of colours or shapes, such as light versus dark, big versus small, numerous versus scarce etc. Such patterns reflect his contemplation of happy and unhappy experiences in life: success and failure at work, good and poor results at school, and the beauty and ugliness of human beings. All these phenomena are normal and unavoidable.
To coincide with the exhibition, Larry Cho has been invited to travel all the way from Australia, to share his artistic journey on 18 January 2020 10:30am at Sun Museum. All are welcome to attend the talk by registration.
Concurrently on display is an exhibition Folklore in Ming and Qing Porcelain, presenting ancient porcelain painted with characters and scenes excerpted from folklore.
