Chan Dick is a talented photographer, award-winning photojournalist and editor for a number of Chinese newspapers in the 90s. Dick was born in 1969 in Hong Kong. His personal works have caught as much as, if not more, public attention as his commercial works. In 2015, his photo book of picturesque bird-eyed view of Chai Wan Fire Station won him the Hong Kong Photo Book Awards. Dick’s photo series,”Chai Wan Fire Station” depicts the daily lives of the Chai Wan firemen as seen from above from the ventilation window of a bathroom at his workshop.
After earning his Master Degree in International Communications from the University of Leeds in the UK, he became a frontline-worker in relief and development in China and other South Asian countries. The experience has translated into a focus on humanity, society and environmental issues in Hong Kong and beyond in his photography.
