Charms of Old - Exhibition of Photography by Lai Wing Chiu
14/8/2004 - 31/10/2004

The Cultural Institute will launch “Charms of Old - Exhibition of Photography by Lai Wing Chiu” on August 14 in the Tap Seac Gallery, showing precious photographs capturing the charms of old Macao.

In coordination with the “2004 Macao Heritage Preservation Year”, the exhibition will display a number of Macao scenic photographs with unique angles and meaningful connotations. Lai Wing Chiu went through the city’s streets and alleys to capture with his unique techniques a sense of elegance and comfort. His photographs bring people back to the leisure that old Macao once possessed. The contrasts of black and white, light and dark, fully portray the beauty of this small city.

Lai Wing Chiu is a renowned photographer in Macao. He started studying photography in 1975 and established the Macao Photography Salon Society in 1978. Lai’s photography is internationally approved. He was once acclaimed as one of the world’s “ten most outstanding photographers” and was invited to join the jury of an international photography exhibition. Lai has received more than twenty honorary fellowships including the “Diamond Star Exhibitor” and the “Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society”.

The “Charms of Old - Exhibition of Photography by Lai Wing Chiu” will kick-off on August 14 at 3pm in the Tap Seac Gallery. At 4pm, Lai will host a lecture in the same venue. Those who are interested in the lecture should telephone 335140 for reservations. The exhibition will end on October 31. The opening hours of the Tap Seac Gallery are everyday from 10am to 7pm (including public holidays). Any queries, please telephone 335141 or visit the Cultural Institute’s website: www.icm.gov.mo/Exhibition/LaiWingChiu/
