About the Artist and Exhibition (http://library.ust.hk/info/exhibit/tinman/)

In 2013, Chinese photographer, Tin Man Lee, was awarded the Grand Prize of Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Competition, out of 25,000 entries from 50 countries. His image “Pouncing Bear” was exhibited in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C., USA from Nov 2014 to April 2015 and will be displayed again from Oct 2015 at a special exhibition. He has won the Top 10 Award from the North America Nature Photography Association (NANPA) and his photo “Fish and Bear Claw” was chosen as the cover for the annual NANPA contest magazine, Expressions, among his many awards and publications in magazines and newspapers. Dr Lee is a frequently invited speaker and judge for photography societies and events internationally.

This exhibition will feature 48 stunning photos, including Nature’s winning piece “Pouncing Bear”and other award-winning photographs. It will also incorporate a large video display to reveal the artist’s adventurous and heart-touching stories.

We look forward to seeing you at the Opening Ceremony and the Talks!

With warm regards,
