Zen Foto Gallery is pleased to host “Hong Kong 1995-1997” photography exhibition by Michio Yamauchi, the Domon Ken Award winner of 2016. This exhibition features 24 selected monochrome works from the reprinted new edition photobook “Hong Kong 1995-1997” published by Shashasha in 2015.
I visited Hong Kong a couple of times between 1995 and 1997, 2 years after I had photographed Shanghai. I wanted to see Hong Kong right before Britain would return it to China...I walked Hong Kong freely in a relaxed manner. Out of the moments that kept overwhelming me, I photographed what my body reacted to. By shooting something, I might have tried to understand reality, nature and a part of myself that was a part of them, all of which I cannot explain in words. I enjoyed photographing objects and stimulating my body.
