All in! (2013)
Ric Tse is a Hong Kong based photographer with special focus on portrait photography. Tse has won numerous local photography competitions, including Canon Photomarathon (2009), Metro Photo Challenge (2011), and Samsung Motion in Details (2012).
For his current series, Tse has photographed scenes around Hong Kong, sometimes cultural or nostalgic, sometimes political, and always easily recognizable. He then interprets these scenes by marrying them with his Lego figures. Titled ‘Legography’, this body of work recreates a typical Hong Kong citizen’s view of his hometown with a healthy measure of local humour, bringing witty charm and fun to the photographs. Drawing on the innocence and naivety embodied in the Lego figures, Tse’s work not only captures the essential mood and character of Hong Kong, but also appeals to the viewers’ childlike spirit.
