Billy H.C. Kwok lives and works in Hong Kong, where he has moved back and forth to Taiwan from since 2015. He tells stories through photography, and the images he makes reveal rapid shifts in the geopolitical relationships and various forms of power structures present in China and its neighboring regions. He has been selected for Foam Talent 2021, and was a W. Eugene Smith Grant Finalist in 2020, a Magnum Foundation Photography and Social Justice Fellow in 2018, and a Magnum Foundation grantee in 2019 for his long-term project investigating political taboos and hidden histories and memories in Taiwan. Apart from generating still images, Kwok works both individually and collaboratively on multimedia storytelling.
