Product Description

Hong kong-based photographer Lai Lon Hin’s self-published book “Teleportation”, 500 pages thick and split into 17 chapters, is an extensive catalogue of the artist’s signature mobile phone camera photography. Focusing on people and objects in his images, Lai often zooms in as much as possible using his camera phone, thereby excluding all unnecessary detail and clutter from his images. The resulting pixelation becomes an element of Lai’s unique style.
Lai Lon Hin has been selected for a number of exhibitions, including “Inside China” at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and “Hong Kong Photography Series 2: City Flâneur - Social Documentary Photography” at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum.

“The image world he creates on a daily basis is realized one square at a time. It is a world whose contour defies definition, yet subjective and directing.”

Lai Lon Hin, born in Hong Kong in 1982. Lai has participated in several group exhibitions, including “Inside China [Journées Thématiques]” (Palais de Tokyo, Paris, 2015); “Hong Kong Photography Series 2: City Flâneur - Social Documentary Photography” (Hong Kong Heritage Museum, 2010) and Pingyao International Photography Festival (China, 2008). Lai is best known for his snapshot aesthetics: using his phone as camera, he practises a mode of seeing through framing and zooming in, resulting in attened and pixelated images of transience and meaninglessness. Lai currently lives and works in Hong Kong.
