Brick People and Moving Lights Exhibition

Hong Kong photographer Mario Chui’s Brick People and Moving Lights photography exhibition is a series of images that captures the vagueness of memory and the passage of time in the city. 

Time flies more unforgivingly in Hong Kong, it seems, when   buildings and shops are taken down and rebuilt within weeks, and landscapes of commercial industries change overnight. We brush past tens and hundreds of strangers every day, our brains subconsciously collecting vague impressions of these people. 

Using the Horizon 202 analog panoramic camera, Mario Chui captures motion in frozen time, embracing the accidents and the distorted chaos of real life, preserving the beauty of our city’s brick people and moving lights.
