The Richmond Art Gallery in Richmond, B.C., is featuring Greg Girard: Kowloon/Richmond through June 29. The exhibition includes Girard’s recent images documenting Richmond, B.C., residents along with previous, never-before-exhibited work from the final years of Hong Kong’s infamous Kowloon Walled City. The population of Richmond is 65% immigrants, almost 50% of whom are Chinese. Richmond and Kowloon are both cities within cities, and through this exhibition, Girard explores each of these communities, their transformations, and the relationships that tie the places together.
