HUNG Ching-yan, Fion (b. 1993) is a Hong Kong photo artist, who was born in a traditional Fujian family. She had lived with her grandparents for many years when she was small and since then she realized that there’s a big generation gap between the family and her. Hung graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (Hon) in Visual Arts degree from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2016. Her work “To Be Used Someday” received a WMA Young Talents award in 2016. Hung is primarily creating works based on photography, images and text. She has been focusing on the exploration of family relationships and resolving conflicts with Chinese cultures in the past few years. As an emerging artist, Hung has been actively participating in the Hong Kong art scene. Her recent project “I Wanted To Be A Mother” was selected to be one of the shows in the “Photographer Incubator Project” of the Hong Kong International Photo Festival 2020. This is also Hung’s second solo exhibition and was just exhibited in PHVLO HATCH art space in SSP district, Hong Kong. Other works of hers were exhibited in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, Germany and Italy. She is moving to England in the coming  year (2021) to obtain her Master in Photography degree in London College of Communication, University of Arts London.
