Hong Kong is a place of many contrasts: ancient and modern, urban and natural, fast-paced and unhurried. Within the city’s deep folds, a small number of traditional tradesmen and women spend their days occupied with a myriad of curious professions that are quickly falling into obscurity, from fortune-telling and letter-writing to birdcage-making. With each passing day, more and more of these aged artisans disappear, losing the intricate details of their craft to the void with no younger disciples to carry on their tradition. If you’ve ever wanted to know more about these dying arts, now’s your chance to learn. Sunset Survivors, a new coffee table book by author Lindsay Varty with photographs by Gary Jones, tells the stories of these traditional tradesmen and women through stunning imagery and candid interviews, immersing readers in the streets of old Hong Kong and paying tribute to those who keep the flame burning in a city besieged by foreign imports and stiff competition.
We are delighted to celebrate Hong Kong’s cultural identity with author Lindsay Varty to give away 10 signed and dedicated copies of Sunset Survivors to 10 lucky Localiiz readers! All you have to do to stand a chance to win is enter our competition below by telling us what Sunset Survivors is written about, and share the competition with your friends and watch our interview with Lindsay Varty to gain additional entries.
