On Thursday February 3 Yee Ling Tang (1972) opened her exhibition “The Story of Four Generations” at the Central Library in Amsterdam. Also the accompanying book was presented and buyers were able to get it signed at the spot.

Yee Ling is born in Hong Kong and, as a three year old, leaves with her mother for the Netherlands where her father is already busy to build up a life. Later she goes to several art- and photography schools and today she is still living and working in the Netherlands. In her twenties, however, she regularly gets drawn back to her birthplace, interested in her background and her family of which a large part is still living in Hong Kong.
The photos of “The Story of Four Generations” illustrate and search for the connection between four generations: her grandparents, parents, herself and her daughter. Partly it's done with portraits but also cityscapes and domestic scenes serve to make the connections tangible.
In the lovely designed book, with a soft cover and a combination of glossy and matte paper, photos are interspersed with texts by Will Tinnemans.

The exhibition is free to visit until April 10 in the Amsterdam Public Library at Oosterdokskade 143.
