Sunset Survivors: Meet the people keeping Hong Kong’s traditional industries alive is a coffee table book by local author Lindsay Varty with photographs by Gary Jones which tells the stories of Hong Kong’s traditional tradesmen and women through stunning imagery and candid interviews. Covering a myriad of curious professions that are quickly falling into obscurity, from fortune telling to face threading, readers soon find themselves immersed in the streets of old Hong Kong. This book is a celebration of Hong Kong’s cultural identity. It preserves the memory of these hardy men and women, and educates visitors and locals alike on the foundations on which the city was built. Sunset Survivors is more than just a travel or coffee-table book; it is a tribute to the city’s character, a celebration of its roots and a guide to its evolution. The ideal gift for any lover of Hong Kong identity and culture.
