Billy H.C. Kwok (b. 1989, Hong Kong) is an independent photographer. With a BA degree in Media and Communication from City University of Hong Kong, Kwok began his career as a journalist in newspapers before pursuing a photography career. Images have become a more intuitive and engaging medium for him to tell stories beyond syntax. His works focus on human rights in modern-day migration, and contemporary conditions perceived as legacy of deep-rooted power structures. He now splits his time for assignments between Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and South East Asia, among others.
Kwok has been working on a long-term project documenting the social landscapes of refugee' mobility and relationships in Hong Kong: From Transit to New Lives, and at the same time conducting a project on male prostitutes in China’s Pearl River Delta: Sister Chang’e.
Kwok is highly observant and adaptable to cultural and environmental diversity. Apart from generating still images, he works both individually and collaboratively for multimedia storytelling.
