Light and Shadow of Hong Kong
Hong Kong-based international photographer Wing Shya's book of photographs, Chaos, has been released nationwide by publisher Littlemore. The book features the photographs that Wing Shya has taken over the past 30 years, including film works, new fashion magazine shots, and unpublished private photos. Chaos is an exploration of experimental communication between WIng Shya and renowned Art Director/Graphic Designer Tsuguya Inoue, who has long been Wingʼs influence in the creation of visual communication. Chaos is a free and providential relationship between graphic design and photography, where two different talents resonate and sometimes collide.
