Which way do you prefer to travel? Do you follow paths already trodden, or do you follow your sense of exploration and see where the journey takes you? Join a photographer and anatomist as they take you on an amazing journey into a universe that they have recently explored.
The Trek is not a textbook or an atlas of human anatomy. It is an expedition that helps you better understand yourself if you savor the chapters with a dose of imagination. After all, isn’t that what travel is all about?

Chan Dick loved to draw at a young age. He went on to study graphic design, and first began involved in photography when given his graduation assignment. As a still-life and architectural photographer, he is devoted to creating personal works, often touching on social issues and everyday life discoveries. He has held 7 solo photography exhibitions to date.
While fascinated by simple lines and minimalistic compositions, Chan Dick’s works tend to embark on the ambiguous attraction between reality and illusion. This is best shown by his series “Chai Wan Fire Station”, which earned him first prizes respectively at the the Tokyo International Foto Awards in 2016, and the Hong Kong Photo Book Awards in 2015. During 2017 and 2018, this series was exhibited in Japan, the Netherlands and Hong Kong, and was collected by the Hong Kong Heritage Museum and Japan’s Irie Taikichi Memorial Museum of Photography Nara City.
Chan Dick’s other notable projects include “No Compromise”, which documented Hong Kong student activists, and Dismayland”, which explored a kind of absurdity that exists in modern cities. Both series won in the International Photography Awards (IPA). His other works have also been exhibited at international photography festivals in Cambodia and Pingy
