Inside the human body is a hidden landscape, an incredible sight to behold. Switch on your imagination and look - isn't that a flower, a tree, a river valley? Did you spot the contour of a mountain, or the mouth of a volcano, the origin of life as some would describe it to be? Whatever you see - they all come from human anatomical specimens of ages gone, of times past, but somehow still invigorated with life. Each piece is unique, just like every human being is, leading viewers on a trek to rediscover our extraordinary body that is a universe in itself.

As a still-life and architectural photographer, Chan Dick's personal works often touch on social issues and everyday life discoveries. He has held 7 solo photography exhibitions to date. Of his many works, his series “Chai Wan Fire Station” earned him first prizes respectively at the Tokyo International Foto Awards in 2016, and the Hong Kong Photo Book Awards in 2015. This series was exhibited in Japan, the Netherlands and Hong Kong, and was collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Japan’s Irie Taikichi Memorial Museum of Photography Nara City.
