One Man's Legacy: Lee Fook Chee's 1950s Hong Kong Photographs

8 October (Saturday) | 16:00-17:00(English) Edward Stokes Founder and Publisher, the Photographic Heritage Foundation Lee Fook Chee, a young seaman, arrived in Hong Kong in 1947. Having faced hard growing up years in Singapore, like many immigrants Lee possessed a gritty resolve. He epitomized Hong Kong's "can do" spirit of the times. Lee's 1950s photographs, unknown until recently, portray diverse aspects of Hong Kong and especially the life of Victoria Harbour. Edward Stokes, co-author, with Dr Patricia Chiu of the book Lee Fook Chee’s Hong Kong, will relate the project’s story: Stokes’ fortuitous meeting with Lee, leading to their collaboration to publish a book; Lee’s and Chiu’s oral history that underpins the book; the story of Lee’s life; and, especially, Stokes’ photo-led commentary on Lee’s superb images of 1950s Hong Kong.
