City Of Darkness: Walled City of Kowloon Exhibition @ Blue Lotus Gallery
Nov 20 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm
City Of Darkness: Walled City of Kowloon Exhibition @ Blue Lotus Gallery

Blue Lotus Gallery is proud to present ‘City of Darkness’: an exhibition exploring the old and long gone Walled City of Kowloon as photographed by Greg Girard and Ian Lambot. This influential body of work, which to date sold over 25,000 book copies, will be on view in a gallery setting for the first time since first published.

For nearly 50 years, the extraordinary community of Kowloon Walled City cut a dark presence in the heart of Hong Kong. Yet without legislation and with little regard for basic services, planning and regulations or building standards, the city not only survived, it positively thrived.

But how could such a place exist in a modern metropolis without administrative oversight, ‘triply neglected’ by the British, Chinese and Hong Kong governments? Who would choose to live there? And why?
