“The twentieth anniversary of the city’s destruction brought with it a desire to revisit these dark alleys of a bygone era. Yet that impulse seems rooted in something much deeper than the formality of the anniversary. By examining works on the Walled City by [Greg] Girard and [Ian] Lambot, this article explores this renewed—and for some, on-going—interest in reliving and revisiting Kowloon Walled City, as made possible by the retelling of its stories and reviewing of its images in relation to Hong Kong’s postcolonial identity in the making.” Jung Joon Lee • Trans-Asia Photography Review
