OCEAN POUNDS and FOUNDERS

OCEAN POUNDS

OCEAN POUNDS is a platform for a number of art-driven projects, founded in 1995 (Hong Kong) by photo-based artists Holly Lee and Lee Ka-sing, headquartered in Toronto since 2000. OCEAN POUNDS is also a primo spot to acquire Holly and Ka-sing’s work - from the very recent to vintages dated back to late 70’s. Furthermore, it acts as a good resource to locate fine art pieces from their past organized projects (Gallery, Representation, Print Program), with work from prominent artists notably Nobuyoshi Araki, Christopher Doyle, Yau Leung and Yao Jui-chung.

Holly Lee

Holly Lee (Hong Kong/Canada) worked as a professional photographer for nearly two decades before relocating to Toronto in 1997. She was awarded an Asian Cultural Council fellowship in 1994 and was the recipient of the Grand Award and two Gold Awards from the Hong Kong Institute of Professional Photographers (1995) and Best of Multimedia in the Pan Pacific Digital Artistry Competition (1996). From 1992 to 1999 she was one of the founders and editors of DISLOCATION magazine, a Hong Kong-based monthly journal on contemporary photography. After moving to Canada in 1997 she helped to set up LEE KA-SING gallery in 2000. From 2006 to 2018 she was involved in INDEXG, coordinating the gallery’s exhibition programs. Her first poetry book Nine Years was publishing as a POD by OCEAN POUNDS in 2020.

Lee Ka-sing

Lee Ka-sing grew up in Hong Kong and resides in Toronto, Canada since 1997. He was the co-founder of DISLOCATION (1992-1999 Hong Kong), a former independent photography magazine. In 1989, he was awarded “Artist of the Year” by Hong Kong Artists’ Guild. A decade later, in 1999 he received the Fellowship for Artistic Development presented by Hong Kong Arts Development Council. Selected monographs include Thirty-one Photographs (1993, Photo Art), Forty Poems, photographs 1995-98 (1998, Ocean & Pounds, Hong Kong Arts Development Council Publication Grant), The Language of Fruits and Vegetables (2004, Hong Kong Heritage Museum), De ci de là des choses (2006, Editions You-Feng). His work is in private and public collections, and in museums such as Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, M+ Museum and Hong Kong Heritage Museum.
