About the Photographer

Jack Picone is the recipient of several of photography’s most prestigious international awards. These include the World Press Awards, the U.S. Photographer of The Year Awards (POY), the Mother Jones/IFDP Grant for Social Documentary Photography and a UNESCO Documentary Photography Award. His work has been exhibited in major galleries and venues worldwide, including the National Portrait Gallery in Australia and at the prestigious Visa d’Or Reportage Festival in France.

For the past 25 years Picone has covered wars and major social issues in Asia, Africa and Europe. He is a co-founder of Australia’s REPORTAGE photography festival, the founder of Communiqué (a series of documentary photography workshops in Asia) and a member of the collective SOUTH. He completed a PhD in Documentary Photography at Griffith University in Queensland Australia, and lectures in photography at universities in Australia and Hong Kong.

His work is held in collections at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, The Australian War Memorial and The State Library of New South Wales, Australia.

Picone’s training in photography was in using black and white film and mastering traditional darkroom print-making. It is a passion that has never faded thanks to the medium’s unrivalled capacity for both subtlety and drama. As legendary photographer Robert Frank expressed it in 1951: “Black and white are the colours of photography. To me they symbolise the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”

Born in Australia, Picone is currently based in Bangkok.

SORRY: SOLD OUT

The burgeoning international interest in “fine art” traditional black and white photography has been a positive by-product of the revolution in digital technology that has occurred in recent years.

The reasoning of collectors is simple: the ability to produce traditional black and white photography is becoming a rarity, and the genre is being elevated into a more specialised, valuable form of artistic expression. Prudent collectors have gained from the opportunity to purchase unique works of photographic art with a potential financial upside.

These considerations have shaped the thought behind the creation of these exquisite prints. Each beautiful tailor-made box contains seven hand-crafted black and white silver gelatin prints. To ensure the highest possible standards, prints displaying the appropriate mood and quality were individually selected. The rich fibre-based paper adds to the quality and ensures exacting gallery standards.

The photographs were authored between 2005 and 2012 during several visits to Hong Kong by award-winning documentary photographer Jack Picone. They were taken using the legendary Hasselblad X Pan 11 Panoramic film camera which allowed Jack to extend his reputation for capturing nuanced, lyrical images in the finest tradition of the genre.

Each photograph invites interpretation and captures fragments of life in one of the world’s most vibrant, and most vertical, cities. Together they ask the viewer to reflect on the past, present and future of Hong Kong as the cityscape is placed under a sharp focus and reflected through the highest photographic standards.

The hand-crafted and individually signed prints are on archival gallery paper and each measures 24 X 8 inches, inclusive of a two-inch white border. They are presented in a stylish box made of the finest acid free paper and archivally sound materials.
