The work of photographer Alex Ng.
For many who are born in Hong Kong in the 1960-ies, mainland China 70-80-ies was both close and very far away. He seemed mysterious country.
Photographer Alex Ng was born in the early 1960s and took up photography in the late 1970s. As a student of journalism in the 1980s, he traveled to China and everywhere carried with him the camera. At that time he was fond of photography only three or four years and knew little about Chinese traditions and culture. Alex Ng loved to ride across China on trains and doing it until graduation.
The photographer kept the negatives captured in boxes and not published until recently, until I stumbled on them. Then he decided to hold a photo exhibition about his youthful travels. It turned out, China for his pictures of the 80-ies strikingly reminiscent of the Soviet Union.
