A Tale of Two Ventures: Wah Kwong at 60

18 Sep 2013 - 14 Oct 2013
Special Exhibition Gallery

Photographs by Basil Pao

Out of sight and out of mind, the global shipping industry provides the vital link which allows us all to enjoy the basic necessities of everyday life. Over a two year period, Hong Kong photographer Basil Pao charted the industry, from the mining of iron ore in Brazil and Australia, the transportation across the ocean to China in a large bulkcarrier, the spectacular process of steel manufacture and the use of that steel to construct a mighty supertanker in Northern China. The two ships featured in this exhibition, the bulkcarrier AQUA VENTURE    and supertanker  DALIAN VENTURE  are part of the fleet of Wah Kwong, one of Hong Kong’s leading shipping companies who commissioned the project as part of their sixtieth anniversary celebrations.
