Yau Leung (1941-1997) is the son of a professional photographer and the love of photographic art runs in the family. He joined the Hong Kong photography group of Adult Education and Recreation Centre in the early 1960s where he studied under S.F. Dan, and was later mentored by Lo So-man. Working for two famous film production companies, he began his career as a professional photographer in 1965. He was associate editor of Photo Tech, chief editor of Photoart, and he was involved with the editorial work of several photographic publications. For more than thirty years, he has been everywhere across Hong Kong to capture ordinary people's lives and the local landscape and he particularly enjoys shooting children in play or action. Full of nostalgia, every single photo strikes the audience that how Hong Kong has changed so radically over the decades.
