Bertha is a photographer born and raised in Hong Kong. Growing up in British colonial and post-colonial Hong Kong, the social and political changes brought by the transition after the transfer of sovereignty to China have immensely aroused her interest in acquiring a more comprehensive understanding of her native city. These unique perspectives are meticulously reflected in her work, focusing on issues relating to identity and urban landscape. She concurrently explores the impacts of a wide variety of social interactions concerning urban cultures, having a deep conviction that photography can serve as a wonderful means for accurately communicating urban stories.
She read Government and Public Administration at the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a sports scholarship. After completing her undergraduate studies, she won the Hong Kong Scholarship for Excellence awarded by the HKSAR Government and pursued her master's degree in Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths, the University of London in 2017.
