“Kinky Vicious”, iPhone Photography Exhibition

One of Hong Kong’s first exhibitions of images captured and edited entirely on iPhone will take place when Liam Fitzpatrick unveils Kinky Vicious at Culture Club on September 19.

In a series of lavishly panoramic photographs that belie the limitations of the iPhone 3GS camera, the Hong Kong-born Fitzpatrick combines impressionistic whirls of light and arresting perspectives to offer unexpected images of his native city. Many of the views are depopulated. This is partly in homage to one of Fitzpatrick’s chief inspirations: the 19th century “Queen’s Road photographers,” whose early cameras were not able to capture the speed of human movement and consequently produced unintentionally eerie images of deserted streets and empty foreshores. At the same time, Fitzpatrick’s un-peopled images suggest an unconcious striving for the still point at the heart of a frenetic city. Stripped of ephemera and crowds, Hong Kong’s chief topographical elements – featureless corporate towers, sea and bare hillside – become timeless totems of a place that lives so intensely in the present.

Reflecting Hong Kong’s history as a port, many of Fitzpatrick’s images are taken on the water. “We’re used to seeing Hong Kong from the island’s perspective, looking out at a famous harbor,” Fitzpatrick says. “But the sea is the heart of what Hong Kong is, and many of our early boat dwellers would have seen Hong Kong the other way—from out on the harbor looking at the island. That’s the point of view I’ve tried to capture in many of the photos. It's a subtle link to the past that appeals to me as a Hong Konger.”

About the photographer

Liam Fitzpatrick was born in Hong Kong of Chinese and Irish parentage and educated at King George V School before taking a First in Modern History at Christ Church, Oxford, where he also participated in his first group photo exhibition. He has variously worked as a kitchen porter, dance-party promoter, theater director, music producer, poet and journalist. His poetry is anthologized in the volumes VS: 12 Hong Kong Poets (Big Weather Press) and City Voices: Hong Kong Writing in English 1945 to the Present (Hong Kong University press). In recent years, Fitzpatrick has been practicing digital photography. He is married with two daughters and lives in the New Territories.

Festival of Wine - LKF

FIND THE PERFECT PAIRING AT THE ILOVELKF FESTIVAL OF WINE

Lan Kwai Fong isn’t always the first port of call when considering quality food and wine in Hong Kong; it’s no secret that the area is best known for its bars, clubs and endless nights of fun. This was the challenge that the team at ILoveLKF faced when they set out to inject fresh interest in food and wine culture into the famous party neighbourhood.

ILoveLKF has teamed up with the Lan Kwai Fong Association, WINE Luxe magazine and top restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong to bring you the Festival of Wine – an afternoon where curious foodies and wine lovers of all levels can enjoy meticulously paired food and wine tastings.

Nine quality restaurants in the Lan Kwai Fong area are participating in this event, including Casa Lisboa, DiVino, Goccia, Indochine, Habibi Restaurant, Ista, La Perouse, Post 97 and Robata Zawazawa. Aside from the pleasure of sipping and sampling top-notch food and wine, wine experts and producers stationed at the venues on the day will help guests break down the basics and cut through the jargon.

Participating restaurants will also offer exclusively paired three-course food and wine menus for two weeks after the event so anyone who can’t make it to the Festival will still get the chance to discover the best sake for Japanese grilled meats at Robata Zawazawa, or determine whether a robust red or subdued white best compliments rich Indian dishes at Ista. Every good reason then to raise a glass!

“The Festival of Wine is designed to help promote wine culture and appreciation,and to help people better enjoy food and wine together by discovering new and inventive pairings,” says Scott Davies, Managing Director of ILoveLKF, “and we are delighted to be able to do this by also showcasing the high quality of restaurants in Lan Kwai Fong."

 

For many wine lovers and foodies, there is no greater truth than the satisfaction of a glass of wine accompanying a splendid meal. But for those who have yet to stumble upon their perfect pairing, here is a chance to spend an afternoon sampling expertly chosen combos in the heart of Lan Kwai Fong.
