Item description for Reclaimed Land: Hong Kong in Transition by David Clarke...

At midnight on 30 June 1997 Hong Kong ceased to be a British colony and became a Special Administrative Region of the Peoples Republic of China. Instead of gaining independence, this most capitalist of cities was absorbed within the worlds largest communist state. Reclaimed Land offers an analysis in words and images of Hong Kongs colonial transition, focusing not on the much-documented ceremonies which surrounded the handover of sovereignty itself but on the longer term process of transformation of which the events of mid-1997 were but one part.

Using images selected from an archive of photographs taken by David Clarke on a daily basis between the end of 1994 and the beginning of 2001, this innovatively conceived book offers a personal and critical perspective on the life of one of the worlds most vibrant cities during a time of great change and self-questioining.
