香港大學美術博物館於二零一六年舉辦的《昔日影像:匈牙利攝影師德索‧博佐奇在香港》展覽廣受好評;有見及此,本館現再進一步呈獻更多由德索‧博佐奇於一九零八年至一九零九年間在中國沿海地區拍攝的照片。博佐奇是一名奧匈帝國海軍軍官,他離開香港後先前往廣州,再到福建、上海及北京旅遊,沿途記錄各地的鄉村風景、城市面貌以及風土人情。

這位攝影師熱愛大自然和建築,尤其是清代街道景致以及在路上遇見的人們。博佐奇的攝影喜好流露出這位早期歐洲旅人身處異域文化之地所懷的興奮心情和好奇心。是次專題展覽的攝影作品詳盡地記錄了中國各地早已經歷了翻天覆地的社會和經濟轉變的地區之昔日影像。

自博佐奇的中國沿海地區之旅後,今年正好迎來匈牙利設置駐港外交代表的七十周年誌慶 ── 我們借此展覽來慶祝這段歷史。

Following the success of UMAG’s 2016 exhibition "Pictures of the Past: Hungarian Photographer Dezső Bozóky in Hong Kong", the Museum is now presenting a larger group of photographs that Dezső Bozóky took along China’s coast from 1908–1909. A naval officer with the Austro-Hungarian Navy, Bozóky first left Hong Kong for Canton before travelling to Fujian province, Shanghai and Beijing, documenting the countryside and cities, along with their inhabitants.

The photographer’s interest in nature and architecture and, above all, the Qing dynasty street scenes and people he met, continue to transmit the excitement and wonder of this early European traveler in a country and culture so far from his own. UMAG’s 2019 exhibition records an abundance of impressions from areas of China that have undergone phenomenal amounts of social and economic change.

For 70 of the years since Bozóky’s journey along China’s coast, Hungary has had a diplomatic representation in Hong Kong—a history that our project celebrates with this exhibition.
