流光迅影香港情 Lee Fook Chee's Hong Kong

Edward Stokes 艾思滔, Patricia Chiu 招璞君

這冊香港舊貌影集以李福志的攝影作品和生平故事作骨幹。李福志一生寂寂無名,他對收藏多年的相片視如珍寶,顧盼自豪。2012年他不幸辭世,唯一安慰是他的攝影遺珍終於得到賞識,他知道相片將編成影集正式出版。

李福志的口述歷史配合招璞君的歷史敍說,成就了有聲有色的故事,讓我們了解李福志戰後移民香港的背景和現實生活的細節:1920年代在新加坡出生的孤兒,年輕時當上海員,1947年飄洋過海來到香港,其後以山頂作主要基地靠攝影維生。

李福志的相片多姿多彩,把1950年代的香港描繪得生動傳神。他為遊客拍照和售賣相片,賺取薄微收入,生活捉襟見肘。他的作品大部分於1954至1960年拍攝,它們湊成奇妙的時間錦囊,印記那十年間香港翻天覆地的變化。當年這位無師自通的攝影師帶着相機單人匹馬在香港闖蕩,過着獨立的生活,面對挑戰始終堅毅不屈,自己當家作主。


Unless two strangers, Lee Fook Chee and Ed Stokes, had crossed paths on The Peak in 2010 the book Lee Fook Chee’s Hong Kong. But the chance meeting took place, setting off a chain of meetings, discussions and interviews. The publication of this uniquely Hong Kong photographic memoir is the result.

Lee arrived in Hong Kong from Singapore in 1947, one of the waves of newcomers seeking refuge from war and poverty. Many, if not most, arrived with little and had no choice but to build up their lives from scratch. Lee’s humble circumstances were far removed from the world of colonial society and the photographic salons.

The 1950s, when the book’s and exhibition’s photographs were taken, were the ‘crucible’ decade for Hong Kong. It is the period when immigrants and refugees start to rise above their hardships. It is the time when we see modern Hong Kong beginning to take shape.

Lee’s life, and his photos taken during the 1950s, reflect the experiences of the growing city. He faced countless challenges, yet he persevered. Photography for Lee was first and foremost a way to make a living. With little education and limited choices, he did not have the luxury of taking pictures as a hobby or as art. Despite this, in his later years he knew and appreciated that his work had great heritage value to Hong Kong.

This is where The Photographic Heritage Foundation came in. The Foundation seeks out rare, or little known, historical photos. Lee’s hitherto unknown photographic works are a good example of what the Foundation particularly aims to do: to bring to light unknown, significant photos that otherwise would never be published, and whose original negatives and prints would probably later be discarded or destroyed.
