Book launch and photo exhibition, Nov 7th — Kowloon: Unknown Territory

What do “deep water pier”, “nine dragons city” and “mandarin’s lake” have in common with “Wong Tai Sin”, the name of a Taoist deity? They’re all districts in Kowloon.

This new book is an exploration of what is often seen as Hong Kong’s shadow-side, from the viewpoints of community, consumerism, art, food, fashion and sex – 15 years after the handover. Hundreds of colour photographs bring the peninsula to the reader in a salute to street culture and the ordinary and extraordinary people of Kowloon.

Join photographer Ira Chaplain and writer Nicole Chabot at a photo exhibition as we launch Kowloon: Unknown Territory!
Venue: the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre
7A Kennedy Road, Central, Hong Kong (at the upper end of Hong Kong Park)
Opening: Wednesday November 7th 2012, 6:30pm – 9:00pm
Wine will be served. All welcome. The exhibition will carry on until Nov 12th.
