Cheng Kai-man, Kevin is a freelance photographer. He is devoted to photography and skilled in visual storytelling. Recently, he has been concentrating on narrative photography to reflect social topics and issues with lenses. Making use of drone technology and his gifted artistic talent, Kevin has broken free from physical barriers and the lack of space characterising Hong Kong to create images distinctly different from those stereotypical portrayal of the City. Not only with a dedication to own artistic creation, Kevin is also keen on taking roles as stage performer and event emcee.
Kevin has achieved outstanding results in several open competitions. He won the Champion and the 1st prize of Hong Kong Abilympics Creative Photography (Outdoor) Competitions in 2011 and 2015 respectively and later represented Hong Kong to participate in the International Abilympics (Korea) and won the Merit Award in the photography division.
Kevin’s works have been seen in various art exhibitions and projects, including his solo exhibition "Lion Rock and Space - Kevin Cheng's Truly Hong Kong Series Art Exhibition", "The Forgotten City Series: Exhibition of “City / Farmers", Affordable Art Fair, “detour”– Coexist Exhibition and Sharing and the Breathe Life Arts Exhibition 2018.
