Hong Kong -- The work of Peter Yung Wai-chuen, a Hong Kong-based photo-journalist and film director, is to show at 4/F Pao Galleries, Hong Kong Arts Centre from April 9th to 14th.

"Crossroads: Hong Kong . Chinese Turkestan . Angkor , photographs by Peter Yung Wai-Chuen" is divided into three parts:

The first part, Hong Kong , is a collection of black and white photos of the last train to leave the Kowloon-Canton railway station in Hong Kong before it closed in 1975. The collection has been called " a poetic memorial to a greatly loved monument."

Chinese Turkestan, is the second part which showcases colour photographs from the artist's latest book, Bazaars of Chinese Turkestan. The exhibition features colour images of rural life in this remote part of Central Asia.

The last part of the exhibition, Angkor, is from another Yung's book. Angkor in Ancient Chinese Annals, which is a summing-up of the artist's passions for the ruins of Angkor after his several trips there duing the past five years.
