No one could foresee that a tiny place like Hong Kong, would capture the eyes of a young photographer and helped him pave his way to landscape photography. Among over the 3,800 entries in the “2020 International Landscape Photographer of the Year Award” competition, the championship fell into the hands of alumnus Kelvin Yuen (Applied Biology), the first Chinese ever to have won the Award! To alumnus Yuen, photography is his life. The very first day when he picked up his camera, he threw himself into photography, devoting himself wholeheartedly.
Irrevocable Bonding with Nature
Kelvin loves nature more than anything else. In secondary school, he has already developed his interest in biology and geography, and hence he chose to study Applied Biology at Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). When reminiscing about how he became fond of taking pictures of nature, he said, “About six years ago after I completed the HKDSE, I tried to explore my interest during the break. One day, I took a walk on Lion Rock with my camera and occasionally captured its night scenery, the gorgeous image deeply impressed me. Since then, I felt being inspired by nature, and capturing the beauty of nature has filled me with vitality. I have never had such a miraculous feeling before.” Subsequently, Kelvin has embarked on landscape photography.
