After sunset, everything appears to retreat into darkness. The visible world is now hidden. Can we still capture the beauty of our surroundings in the absence of natural light? To find out, join So Hing-keung, one of the artists featured in the exhibition, as he uses his camera and a torch to creatively compose photographic renditions of the world around us at twilight. Come inspired! Bring an object of your choice and participate in a workshop led by the artist.
