A Permanent Instant: Instant Photography from 1980s-2000s by Hong Kong Artists was published to accompany the exhibition of the same name held at Blindspot Gallery from 5 March to 23 April 2016. 'The exhibition showcases the original and unique instant photography works by selected Hong Kong artists who practise photography and other artistic media. Instant photography as an open photographic medium because of its low-tech, impromptu and private nature, allows  different forms of photographic and artistic experiments both conceptually and technically, was widely used by photographers and artists alike during 1980s-2000s. It was used both as a means and an end. The unique works on view also reflect a facet of the Hong Kong photography scene influenced by western art trends and icons, films and ideologies including Andy Warhol, pop art, abstraction and futurism.' - excerpt from Press Release.

Includes an essay by Blues Wong, followed by artist biographies.
