Street stories: Ko Chung-ming is a veteran photojournalist with more than 20 years of experience. A new solo exhibition at Lumenvisum titled “Exiled: The Homeless in Hong Kong” showcases Ko’s photography documenting the homeless. Ko spent seven years following and building relationships with the homeless community, and photographs of three homeless persons will be shown: former triad member “Uncle Hung”, Rana Damar Sing, and Victoria Park “resident” Simon Lee. Throughout the seven years, Ko witnessed the ups and downs of his subjects’ life, documenting attempts of rehabilitation and self-growth as well as difficult episodes of death and illnesses.
The photographs capture an immense amount of detail, offering a zoom lens into the existence of the city’s homeless community. Hong Kong is one of the most unequal cities in the world, and Ko’s photography reflects on whether the homeless is self-exiled or exiled.
