Hong Kong Remembered, photographs by Richard Yee
On view by appointment during fall 2020.

As we make our way into the fall season, we would like to introduce you to Chinese photographer, Richard Yee. This exhibition highlights twenty black and white photographs taken in Hong Kong during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s. Richard Yee found artistic inspiration in photography while studying at Pui Ching High School. In the 1950s, while he waited for his US entry approval, Richard would often visit Hong Kong to document the daily life. During these adventures he would photograph the beautiful sights of the harbor and the challenges of the working class.

Richard has been active in the World Photography Salon since 1960, and ranked second among the Worldwide Photography Top Ten chart in 1968. Richard has photographs in the permanent collections of: Addison Gallery of American Art Andover, MA; Peabody Museum Salem, MA; Mariner’s Museum Newport News, VA; National Art Museum of China Beijing, China; Overseas Chinese History Museum of China Beijing, China; and Seattle Art Museum Seattle, WA.
