This is the last thing that remains
The use of light to capture something to result in an image is the definition of photography.
In this project, the process is to first photograph light in different spaces in Hong Kong, and then to print out each of the images, which are then photographed and printed.
This print-and-shoot process is again repeated for several rounds.
At the end of this manual, low-tech process, the final images are different from the original ones, without the use of any software, app, and/or filter to manipulate images.
The originals are images of light in my bedroom, my neighborhood, a train, a typical Hong Kong office, and in the Sunbeam Theatre in North Point opened in 1972.
The process is a means to examine the role of technology, manipulation, and photography itself. No matter where and how an image (in this case, images of light) was taken, light is what remains after this manually repeated process of printing and shooting.
