馮建中 John Fung Kin-Chung

Acclaimed photographer John Fung Kin-Chung was born in Madagascar, Africa. At the age of 13, he moved back to Asia with his family and was educated in Macau. John eventually settled in Hong Kong where he had a number of jobs including starring in a film, working on construction sites, opening restaurants and making lamps, but all along he never put down his camera.


In the 1980s, John Fung held four photographic exhibitions: “Germs”, “Cocoon”, “Ten Years On” and “On the Road”. In 1988, he received two grants, from the British Council and the Asian Cultural Council, to study in London and New York City. After his return to Hong Kong in 1989, John worked as a documentary photographer for Next Magazine and Ming Pao Weekly Magazine until 2004. In 2005, he was invited by Oxfam and Greenpeace Hong Kong as a volunteer photographer to document areas which had been devastated by the 2004 tsunami travelling to Africa and Southeast Asia. He continues to participate in voluntary work for non-profit organizations.


John Fung now works as a full-time artist in Hong Kong. In 2008, his photography book “One Square Foot” was published by MCCM Creations. In 2009, he was one of the Hong Kong artists selected for Sotheby’s Sale of Contemporary Asian Art in Hong Kong. Over the years, his works were also exhibited at Hanart Square, Asia Society, Hong Kong Arts Centre, Hong Kong Heritage Museum in Hong Kong, Eslite Bookstores and Taiwan International Visual Arts Centre in Taiwan, as well as Guangdong Museum of Art and Novosibirsk State Art Museum. His works are in many private collections.
