使命

黑點致力成為一個攝影的公共平台,連接著不同藝術家、有抱負的攝影師、其他藝術工作者和廣大市民。

我們支持一群勇於創新、敢於冒險、有遠大志向的香港年輕攝影師。黑點能為他們的事業發展提供多元化的交流機會和攝影器材。

由於全球一體化的關係,黑點大力推廣本地攝影師和他們的作品到世界的舞台上。透過不同合作計劃,我們希望跟外國攝影師進行更多藝術和文化的交流。

歷史

2006年,尹子聰正式在上環成立了黑點。作為一名全職藝術家,尹氏留意到香港缺乏一個凝聚藝術家、攝影師和任何有興趣人士的藝術空間。

黑點就是憑著一間黑房、一個小型的攝影刊物存庫,開始展開推廣攝影藝術的旅程。由2007年開始,黑點更定期舉辦攝影課程,讓普通市民也能親身體驗攝影的樂趣。

2012年初,黑點進行了700平方英尺的工作室空間擴建工程。該空間現已被裝修成一個影廊,定期展覽不同本地和外國的攝影師作品。

Misson


The Photocrafters endeavors to be a plat­form for pho­to­graphy, con­necting the dots among pro­fes­sional artists, aspiring pho­to­graphers, other industry prac­ti­tioners and the gen­eral public.

We sup­port innov­ative, adven­turous yet emer­ging pho­to­graphers across Hong Kong. Networking oppor­tun­ities with pro­fes­sionals and abundant studio resources are avail­able for their career advancement.

Living in the glob­al­ized world, The Photocrafters encour­ages the delivery of local pho­to­graphers and their art­works onto the world stage. We exchange aes­thetic ideas and pro­mote cul­tural under­standing through col­lab­or­a­tion pro­jects with over­seas photographers.

History


Back in 2006, The Photocrafters was founded by Simon Wan Chi-Chung in Sheung Wan. As a full-time artist, Wan was clearly aware of the lack of art space in Hong Kong that con­verges artists, pho­to­graphers and other inter­ested mem­bers in the community.

As a result, The Photocrafters was cre­ated to embark on the journey towards this goal with a pro­fes­sional black and white dark­room and an archive with pho­to­graphy pub­lic­a­tions. Since 2007, the organ­iz­a­tion began hosting reg­ular courses to offer a hands-on exper­i­ence on pho­to­graphy to the public.

In the begin­ning of 2012, the studio car­ried out a space exten­sion pro­ject. 700 square feet of space was ren­ov­ated into a gal­lery space for reg­ular exhib­i­tions of local and for­eign photographers.
