Hong Kong is an uncommon place with a long history of colony for more than 100 years. It is also one of the modern revolutionary sources. But it is unfamiliar to ordinary people for some reasons. However, the abstruseness of Hong Kong isn’t learnt, though its importance has gradually been understood by the Chinese people in the recent thirty years. Now, Meng Minsheng, a photographer, presents us something happened in 1960s and 1970s in Hong Kong in his photographical works and above all he tells us not only the prosperity of Hong Kong but also its struggle in the dark. Mr. Meng spends all his life doing photographical work with political viewpoint of the Left.

Meng Minsheng(1919-2007), born in Shanghai, went to Hong Kong when he was young. In 1950’s, he worked in movie factory for a short period and began to take photos of Hong Kong. From then on, he recorded society of Hong Kong through the photos.
