About the Artist:
In 2008, local photographer John Choy was commissioned by the Housing Authority to document the Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate, the earliest public housing development in Hong Kong. To his surprise, Choy found himself deeply affected by the crumbling housing blocks and their residents. He became determined to create an in-depth record of not just the estate, but a unique way of life. Created over a period of a year, Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate gives a sense of how the human spirit transcends the narrow physical confines of the man-made environment.
