Through a multitude of photographs, Mark O’Neill will describe the great contributions South Asians have made to Hong Kong – as soldiers, policemen, international traders, judges and creators of major institutions – and introduce their history, religions and culture. Kevin Lee will share how he found his subjects and persuaded them to be photographed. Their new book, ” How South Asians Helped to Make Hong Kong – History, Culture, Profiles, Food, Shopping” was also authored by former FCC governor Annemarie Evans.


A resident of Asia since 1978, Mark O’Neill has been writing books since 2006, on Chinese history. This new book is the ninth. The others include two on Chinese workers in World War One: his missionary grandfather in Manchuria: Sir Robert Hart: the story of the two Palace Museums: and “Israel and China: from the Tang Dynasty to Silicon Wadi”. Six, including this one, have editions in Chinese and English.


Kevin Lee was born and raised in Hong Kong,, and has lived and worked in Vancouver, Beijing and Shanghai. He studied at Ecole régionale des beaux arts de Besançon in France. Mr. Lee has been a photographer since 1985. His pictures have appeared in many international media, including on the cover of The Economist.
