What I am capturing is the ‘remnants’ of Hong Kong’s urban legends.
Urban legends may have been told by a ‘friend of a friend’ before they are passed on throughout society. What is more fascinating and important than the truth, or lack thereof, behind them is the “that-has-been” nature of their circulation, the act of which being a validation of their existence. Or perhaps what we really should be asking is why do these urban legends propagate? And what does their existence reflect on the state and psychology of society?
Ho is a Hongkonger currently working as a photographer. As part of a community bound by a shared future, he is determined to empower the powerless through photography. Past exhibitions include Dances with the Green – An Art Exhibition on Northeastern New Territories (2014) and STYLE of the northeastern New Territories – that’s what we call life (2013).
