“Double Gaze” is a self published photobook produced by Lau Chi-chung. Photography is the best medium for Lau to express his creativity. In this series “Double Gaze”, he spent years to explore and visit numbers of vanishing places in the city of Hong Kong and took photos of those abandoned portraits. This series could be read as gazing into the eyes of the subject from the old portrait or gazing into the period of time that the subject was once in. Gazing involves at least two parties engaging in a dialogue and it cannot be done by oneself. Lau hopes his work can reach out to more people in different ways other than exhibiting in numbers of galleries and art museums.

《對望》攝影集是劉智聰的自資獨立出版計劃,攝影一直是劉氏的創作媒界,在《對望》這個系列,劉氏花了多年時間,穿梭香港各區正在消失中的場景,拍下一張又一張被遺留下來而沒有人認領的肖像,作品可以解讀為與相中人對望又或者是與相中人的時代互相對望,對望的其中一個意義在於需要有對象,一個人不能夠成立,這個系列在不同的博物館和展覽形式展示過後,藝術家希望為作品繼續與不同的觀眾見面尋找出路。
