The rare images present a multidimensional view of the creative approach, stylistic flow and selection mechanism of Hong Kong photographers. They outline the cultural ecology of Hong Kong photography of a certain period, which is of great significance to the study of the history of Chinese photography.

Viewers can feel the atmosphere of Hong Kong's street life at that time, and perceive the changes and the spectacular scenery.

"This exhibition allowed me to see not only Ho's works, but also Hong Kong in those days, and the history and humanity there," says another visitor surnamed Li.

The photos are also a key to unlocking a distinctive creative scene at the time, that of salon photography. Its prosperity is inextricably linked to the culture of Hong Kong and even the development of photography in China as a whole.
