[EXHIBITION 展覽] Along China’s Coast: Dezső Bozóky's Travel Photography 1908–1909 漫遊中國沿海：德索‧博佐奇的旅遊攝影 一九零八至一九零九
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。
The exhibition is now extended to February 9, 2020.
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.
