Lee Ka-sing began DUET series in 2014, a large body of diptych photographs. Over the years, more than a thousand diptychs have been created. In 2019, Lee began to construct picture poems from these diptych photographs, which in his own words, are phrases or stanzas in his pocket. In fact, most of the diptychs, by itself, and from an imaginary perspective, are duo images juxtaposed like a piece of haiku.
Lee Ka-sing (b.1954), a photo-based artist brought up in Hong Kong, currently works and lives in Toronto, Canada. His work is in the public collections such as Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, M+ Museum and Hong Kong Heritage Museum.
