John Thomson's Hong Kong: past and present
Thu - Wed
The University of Hong Kong

John Thomson, seen by many as the greatest 19th century photographer of China, recorded Hong Kong in 1868. By then the colony was a fast-developing trading port, as Thomson's photos show. Recently, the Photographic Heritage Foundation commissioned photographs of Thomson's photo sites, creating visual comparisons of Hong Kong almost 150 years apart - now dramatically different but still identifiable.
