"Every photo is a story, a meeting point and a way to understand. Every time I take picture of a girl, I love listening to her story. The photo itself is just a by-product to jot a note during my journey of creativity.” - Terence Pang
Having been a keen photographer since he was a teenage, Terence Pang, our computer science alum, made a life-changing decision to follow his dream and become a professional photographer, after working in IT for a decade upon graduation from HKUST.
At the beginning, he mainly focused on wedding photography. With his exceptional passion and talent, he has made a name for himself shortly and has been since then receiving a number of local and international awards for his work. Today, the profile of Terence has been getting much more diverse beyond photography.
Capturing the special moments of a number of girls including alumnae and student of HKUST from different walks of life , this exhibition is not merely a recollection of his masterpieces on girls he met, but also vividly visualizes this fruitful journey of following his passion in photography.
