About Hong Kong-based photographer Chan DICK 陳的
Chan DICK loved to draw and studied graphic design. He 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. Fascinated by simple lines and minimalistic compositions, his 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 in 2016, and the Hong Kong Photo Book Awards in 2015.
During 2017 and 2018, this series was exhibited in Japan, the Netherlands and Hong Kong, and was collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Japan’s Irie Taikichi Memorial Museum of Photography Nara City. His other works have also been exhibited at international photography festivals in Cambodia and Pingyao of China.
