This is the sixth volume of the 12-book Hong Kong Photographers series. Each volume presents an extensive portfolio of a photographer's work, accompanied by critical analysis and a unique look into the lives behind the camera. This present volume presents the documentary work of Hong Kong photographer Chun Wai taken in various countries and cities, including China, India, Myanmar, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Bangladesh, Iran, and Hong Kong.

'Hong Kong-born Chun Wai received his artistic education in sculpture at Le Quai-École supérieure d’art de Mulhouse in France, and went on to work as a sculptor and teacher as well as developing his technique as a photographer. Central to his photographic style is his belief in portraying the essence of reality. Grounded in realism and rich in social connotation, Chun’s images have an uncompromising quality, with the artist painstakingly waiting for his subjects to naturally respond to his camera in their own time and space. Over the years, he has documented the beauty and compassion of life in photos that have the power to transcend social and geographic boundaries to expose a sublime universal human truth.' - from publisher's website
