Anothermountainman (aka Stanley Wong Ping-pui) expresses his distinctive view of the city through a camera lens. His works are uniquely local, exuding a passion for Hong Kong as well as his unwillingness to compromise in his exploration of the real – not idealised – ‘Pearl of the Orient’. His down-to-earth approach and love for social phenomena allow him to expose the true heart of Hong Kong, and to touch those who want an unflinching account of the city.
Anothermountainman’s photographs are of iconic people – including the late calligraphygraffiti ar tist Tsang Tsou-choi – and iconic places, including the Cenotaph, Oil Street (an area occupied by artists in the 1990s), and even decrepit lanweilou (unfinished and abandoned buildings) in China. With them, Anothermountainman offers an alternative version of beauty – the touching beauty of presence and absence.
