Leong Ka Tai has been a professional photographer for over 25 years. Born in Hong Kong, he studied engineering at university in the USA and later worked in England. It was during a sojourn in Paris in the early 1970s that he discovered the artistic capabilities of the camera. Returning to Hong Kong in 1976, he set up his studio and subsequently combined photography with extensive travel, especially in China. Since then his photographs have been exhibited in Hong Kong, Europe, the USA and south-east Asia. They have been published in 22 books and numerous magazines, notably National Geographic, GEO, Life, the New York Times, the Sunday Telegraph and Paris Match. He has won local and international awards including “Artist of the Year” from the Hong Kong Artists Guild and First Prize for Best Photojournalism in the 1994 Harry Chapin Media Awards (World Hunger Year), New York.
