brownie publishing

“brownie publishing” is an independent publisher, which works for promoting Hong Kong art of photography and Photobook, so that the public may come to know more outstanding local photographers. Ever since the popularization of cameras and prevalence of social networks, photography has become part of Hong Kong people’s life. Photography as artistic creation, however, seems somewhat remote. We aim at exploring more creative possibilities of ourselves, our environment, and humanities through the medium of photography.   

 

「brownie publishing」為獨立出版社,致力推動香港攝影藝術與影集文化,並期望能讓大眾認識更多優秀的本地攝影師。自從攝影器材的普及與社交網絡的流行,攝影早已是香港人生活的一部分,然而若說到用攝影進行藝術創作,卻又好像變得有點點遙遠了。我們希望與大眾一起深入並從不同角度認識攝影,讓每個人都能輕鬆透過攝影媒介對自身、存在環境以及人文生活進行探討,發掘創作上更多的可能性。2015年6月,與Rac合辦「100香港人自攝像」相片徵集活動、展覽及出版同名攝影集。

Blackness ─ a feeling of mysterious suspense, hovers between the individual and the collective, between remembering and forgetting, and between the past and the present.”
