About

Johnny Gin is a Hong Kong-based copywriter who has developed a second career as a photographer. He completed his MFA in Photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD HK) in June 2016.

His photographic interest lies in the examination of the built environment and vernacular landscapes and the ways in which these spaces inform us about the culture and identity of a city. His personal and student work have been exhibited internationally. He was a Finalist in the WYNG Masters Award in 2016, and his work was published in a special Hong Kong issue of European Photography, which accompanied the Hong Kong Contemporary Photography Exhibition in July 2016.
