David Bellis returns with a new selection of photos and stories, this time focusing on Hong Kong’s people.
Most of the photos were taken in the early years of the twentieth century and show a Hong Kong that has long since disappeared. They have been scanned at high-resolution and digitally restored, so David can zoom in to show us their hidden details.
David runs the popular local history website, Gwulo.com. It hosts over 34,000 pages about old Hong Kong, including over 20,000 photos. In 2014 David won the SCMP's Heritage Preservation Award, one of their "The Spirit of Hong Kong Awards", for his work on Gwulo.com. More recently he has published two collections of photos and stories, based on his earlier talks to the RAS.
