This retrospective by celebrated photographer Edward Stokes presents a telling, evocative portrait of Hong Kong's natural beauty. It captures the airy paths and ridgetop walks from which Hong Kong's most dramatic panoramas can be gained.
Edward Stokes is a photographer and writer. An Australian, he grew up in Hong Kong and studied at Magdalen College, Oxford. After some years as a teacher, he turned to photography and writing. He completed five books on Australian themes, three of them with his own photographs. In 1993 Edward Stokes went to live in Hong Kong, where he photographed and wrote a number of books portraying the territory's natural landscape and ecology. These books were published by a not-for-profit body which, with others, he had established in 1997 - the Hongkong Conservation Photography Foundation. Based on its work and publications, together with the same people and others, in 2007 Edward Stokes began research and preparation for the establishment of a new publishing organization - The Photographic Heritage Foundation.
