Chan Dick loved to draw at a young age. He studied graphic design, and first began involved in photography when given his graduation assignment. As a still-life and architectural photographer, he is devoted to creating personal works, often touching on social issues and everyday life discoveries. He has held 7 solo photography exhibitions to date.
While fascinated by simple lines and minimalistic compositions, Chan’s works tend to embark on the ambiguous attraction between reality and illusion. This is best shown by his series “Chai Wan Fire Station”, which earned him first prizes respectively at the Tokyo International Foto Awards, and the Hong Kong Photo Book Awards. This series was exhibited in Japan, the Netherlands and Hong Kong, and collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Japan’s Irie Taikichi Memorial Museum of Photography Nara City.
Recently, Chan was invited by the Medical School of the University of Hong Kong to photograph their collection of human specimens. He produced an aesthetic set of images called “The Trek”, which challenges the common perception of the topic by the general public. The work was published as a photo book. It was placed Third Overall at the International Photography Awards (IPA), and won a Gold Prize at the Tokyo International Foto Awards (TIFA).
