As a not for profit plat­form con­necting pro­fes­sional artists, aspiring pho­to­graphers, other industry prac­ti­tioners and the gen­eral public, The Photocrafters have through out the years – with the help of our sup­porters and volun­teers – held numerous pho­to­graphy exhib­i­tions, courses, work­shops of dif­ferent levels, as well as aca­demic forums. We have also com­mitted our resources to sup­port local emer­ging pho­to­graphers and artists. All of the which were real­ised without any gov­ern­ment funding or other funding sources. Being self funded grants us greater freedom, but it can also get tough at times.

For this year’s Hong Kong ArtWalk, we have taken the oppor­tunity to estab­lish an annual fun­draising auc­tion to help fund The Photocrafters’ oper­a­tions. The works of 10 emer­ging and estab­lished artists will be auc­tioning, with each artist presenting 10 works.

We hope to see you, and we thank you for your on going support.

Pauline ST. DENIS shoots with color trans­par­ency film, but only advances the film par­tially to create over-lapping expos­ures. Her work cap­tures the eth­ereal quality of light, move­ment, and time. Her pic­tures are kin­etic, ener­getic, and highly styl­ised. She demon­strates Holga’s upbeat and ener­getic cap­ab­il­ities.

Objective so common, so mundane that people have long since ceased to notice them.
