麗中國 絢彩西部 - 晉守賢攝影展
Gorgeous China, The Colorful West – Photographs by Jin Shouxian

On 12 March, the Library opened a Photo Exhibition by Mr Jin Shouxian, a renowned mainland photographer from Chonqing.  Professor Wei Shyy, Provost; Ms Diana Chan, University Librarian; and Mr Thomas Ng, Director of the Publishing Technology Center; officiated the Ceremony together with the artist.  Over 100 distinguished guests, including many friends and pupils of Mr Jin from Chonqing , attended the Ceremony.  The event was followed by a guided Gallery Tour with Mr Jin introducing his works to the guests.

As an experienced educator in photography, Mr Jin also conducted three talks on photography to the HKUST community.  The talks were so overwhelmingly subscribed, that the Multi-function Room where we held the talks were heavily packed with enthusiastic staff and students.  Over 200 people attended the talks and gave very positive response.  They thanked the Library for organizing the Exhibition and talks to help enrich campus cultural life and widen their artistic horizons.
The Exhibition will run until 9 June.  When you visit the exhibits, don't forget to scan the QR codes with your mobile device to share Mr Jin's stories behind these photos.  The videos and QR codes for 20 photos were specially created by the Publishing Technology Center (PTC) to increase the interest of viewing the exhibits.  Thanks to PTC colleagues for collaborating with the Library on this innovative project.
