Photographing Heritage ...

The primary purpose of this website is to promote interest in the many surviving foreign buildings in China’s former treaty ports and leased territories and in Hong Kong’s built heritage, through its 126 Declared Monuments.

Of secondary importance, there is a collection of landscape images and, for the ultimate landscape, one of panoramas. Finally, there is a small collection of people I have met on my travels.

Please contact me should you wish to use any of these images. I am keen to support on a pro bono basis heritage projects, historical publications, anything involving education and similar.

Recent: The book on my collection of Treaty Port images has at last been completed and was released in Hong Kong in late March 2020. Limited numbers are available in the UK and it is due to be released in Canada and the US in December 2020. Dedicated website link.
