INFO

We are pleased to announce the release of Kurt Tong's (b.1977, Hong Kong) latest series  Sweet Water, Bitter Earth, now available at the Print Sales Gallery.

Using his Chinese heritage as inspiration, Sweet Water, Bitter Earth traces the photographer's ancestral roots in search of emotional and physical connections to his homeland, based on ideas and visions shaped by childhood TV shows and his past photographic projects in the country.

The series was awarded second prize in the Sony World Photography Awards' 2017 Landscape category and is due to be exhibited in China and the US over the next year.

"Sweet Water, Bitter Earth is my journey into China in search of redemption and my ultimate failure to connect with my homeland.

Chinese overseas often struggle with their identity; many have an idealised image of what motherland is like, from stories retold by our relatives or romanticised views from movies. The reality is often different. It is often the unexpected differences in cultures that alienate us from feeling secure with our roots."
- Kurt Tong
