Those photographs taken in the late 1970s and early 1980s document the first seeds of change as the people embraced many new elements of daily life. As the reform deepened, living standards rose and the urban and cultural landscape evolved. In recent years, Liu Heung Shing’s photographs include portraits of individuals who fill China’s growing list of success stories from the world of business and the arts.
Today, Liu Heung Shing makes his home in Shanghai, where he is the founding director of the Shanghai Center of Photography, just one of the leading cultural institutions that have sprung up in this leading Asian city in the recent decade.
