Gideon de Kock

Gideon De Kock moved from South Africa to Hong Kong in 2015 and in the same year picked up his very first camera. What started as a creative interest rapidly developed into a full-time profession. Aside from his commercial work, Gideon is passionately committed to a personal practice which is almost exclusively shot in 35mm film. His subject matter gravitates around the streets, the every-day and the people who inhabit collective spaces. In 2018 his journey through the avenues of Hong Kong culminated in the publication of his first photo book, “Some Near. Some Far”. His first solo exhibition, curated by 宀 Gallery, titled INFORMAL CHEMISTRY, was continuation from this project, with a photography style that has evolved from ‘confrontational’and candid, to a more detail orientated investigation of concepts like supramundanity and purpose. While expanding beyond Hong Kong, Gideon builds upon his distinct perspective of contemporary environments; turning objects into ornaments and elevating banality with the skillful act of framing.
