Hong Kong University Alumni Association (HKUAA) is honoured to invite Ms. Betty Yao MBE, Director of Credential Arts Management, to give us an exclusive guided tour to appreciate valuable photos taken in China 1868-1872 by the famous Scottish photographer, John Thomson (1837-1921).
The images included in this guided tour were taken by John during his extensive travels in China between 1868 and 1872. The most special thing of his works is to show the human aspects of life in China through his extensive record of everyday street scenes, which is rarely captured by other photographers of that era. During the guided tour, Betty will guide us to appreciate the remarkable works of art and illustrate the precious historical value of the photos in detail.
After the guided tour, you are welcome to stay behind to appreciate exciting and innovative attraction includes semi-permanent and special exhibitions, dynamic displays, educational events and a Museum Shop to have a deeper understanding of Hong Kong as an international shipping centre until 7:00 p.m.
Welcome to bring your family and friends to join.
