Photographs by students of HKU, City University, Baptist University and SCAD
How do the youth of Hong Kong view their world? In the FCC’s Young Lenses exhibition, students presented photos of Hong Kong as they see it. With their images, these budding photographers and photo-journalists capture poignant moments of Hong Kong in the news, Hong Kong on the streets and Hong Kong life as it happens.
In this first exhibition by student photographers, the FCC presented works by our future colleagues and contributors to the world of media and journalism.
The FCC Wall committee would like to thank Kees Metselaar of The University of Hong Kong, Birdy Chu of City University of Hong Kong, Robin Ewing of Hong Kong Baptist University and Adam Kuehl of SCAD Hong Kong for their assistance in selecting photographs by their students for submission to this exhibition.
