AbstractIn the period since Hong Kong's 1997 return to China there has been a great deal of new construction and demolition in the city, and widespread public protest against these changes has been seen. Although superficially this contestation might seem to be about the narrowly defined issue of ‘conservation’, in fact broader issues concerning cultural identity, collective memory, and the city's future are at stake. This discursive battle concerning Hong Kong's postcolonial built environment is the topic of the present photo essay, which draws on an historical archive of documentary images created by the author in the period from 1994 to the present.
