About Sunset Survivors: Meet The People Keeping Hong

Product Description Sunset Survivors tells the stories of Hong Kong's traditional tradesmen and women through stunning imagery and candid interviews. Covering a myriad of curious professions that are quickly falling into obscurity, from fortune telling to face threading and letter writing to bird cage making, readers soon find themselves immersed in the streets of old Hong Kong. Filled with interviews, photographs and little-known facts about the city's twilight industries, Sunset Survivors is a tribute to those who keep the flame burning in a city besieged by foreign imports and stiff competition. This book is a celebration of Hong Kong's cultural identity. It preserves the memory of these hardy men and women, and educates visitors and locals on the foundations on which the city was built. An up-close and personal look at the industries and workers that gave rise to the Hong Kong of today, Sunset Survivors is more than just a travel or coffee-table book; it is a tribute to the city's character, a celebration of its roots and a guide to its evolution. In a city undergoing a dramatic cultural shift, balancing social and political upheaval, the need to document Hong Kong's traditional livelihoods has seldom been greater. Capturing the true personality of this metropolis, Sunset Survivors is a vital piece of history. About the Author Lindsay Varty is a half-British, half-Macanese woman raised in Hong Kong. A writer and professional rugby player for the city, she lives and breathes Hong Kong and is fascinated by its culture and history. As a young girl, her parents would take her to eat congee in Kowloon, order snacks from dai pai dongs and get haircuts at traditional barber shops. Her parents wanted their children to discover the real Hong Kong and to know its people. This book is a tribute to that wish. Lindsay is a published poet, journalist and author. Originally from England, Gary Jones has lived in Hong Kong since 1990. He has been in the creative business since 1978, working as a designer and creative director both in London and Hong Kong. He runs his own creative consultancy in the city, which he set up in 1992. Fascinated by photography from his years at Art College in Hull, Gary now specialises in food, portrait and documentary photography, predominantly in black and white, using both film and digital cameras. He is a member of the Royal Photographic Society and holds an LRPS Distinction.
