Lo­cal pho­tog­ra­pher Pat Fok doc­u­ments her life of ad­ven­ture in a new book

From mo­saic-clad mosques in Iran to craggy, tem­ple-crowned clifftops in Bhutan, Pat Fok’s lenses have cap­tured mo­ments of as­tound­ing nat­u­ral and man-made beauty over her four decades as a pho­tog­ra­pher. The daugh­ter of the late ty­coon Henry Fok has col­lected her most strik­ing snaps in a new hard­cover book ti­tled Jour­ney of Light. Filled with evoca­tive im­ages of land­scapes, cul­tures and peo­ple, the book is Fok’s sixth pho­to­graphic memoir. Fok learned her craft at the Art Cen­tre in Los An­ge­les and un­der­took fur­ther study with em­i­nent US na­ture pho­tog­ra­pher Ansel Adams. Pro­ceeds from sales of Jour­ney of Light, which is avail­able through Kelly & Walsh, will go to­wards Unesco’s her­itage preser­va­tion ef­forts in Nepal. The artist’s work has been pre­vi­ously ex­hib­ited in Hong Kong, Lon­don, Am­s­ter­dam and nu­mer­ous other lo­ca­tions.
