Deacon Lui

Deacon Lui is an artist who explores identity, social justice, and displacement through photography. He was born in Hong Kong, where he graduated from BA (Hons) Sociology at Hong Kong Baptist University. Following that, he graduated from MA Documentary Photography and Photojournalism at the London College of Communication.

Deacon’s work embodies a deep commitment to social justice and human rights. He held three solo exhibitions at Parallel Space, Hong Kong, and his MA graduate project was presented at Bermondsey Project Space in February 2024. He was selected as one of the 20 Finalists Carte Blanche Students 2023.

Since relocating to London in 2022, Deacon’s work has evolved to question the boundaries of documentary image-making. He experiments with alternative photography and printing processes to explore the representation of marginality, forced displacement, and social alienation. His recent works seek to capture the essence of human resilience and resistance in the face of social changes and adversity.
