CASE TOKYO is pleased to announce Chan Dick's solo exhibition Chai Wan Fire Station, to be held from April 21 to May 12, 2018. Hong Kong-based photographer Chan Dick has garnered international acclaim with his photo series Chai Wan Fire Station.

“One day, working in my office, I discovered that the window in my bathroom was overlooking the Chai Wan Fire station. The view had much more to offer than I had originally imagined. The firemen did their training, of course, but they also played volleyball, cleaned their fire engines, practiced unrelated stuff and so on - all of these things were taking place in this small area.” - Chan Dick

Far below Chan Dick’s toilet window, he was looking into the small world in which the firemen lived their everyday lives. Chan Dick was drawn towards photographing the daily activities from his bird’s-eye viewpoint for the minimalism and beauty it offered.

Chan Dick’s original publication was a critical success throughout the Asian photography world, winning him a Hong Kong Photo Book Award in 2015 and a Tokyo International Foto Award in 2016.
