Gideon de Kock

Facts

  • Born in South Africa
  • Film Photographer
  • Never leaves home without his camera
  • Finds bananas the best fruit of all time
  • Hopes he was a drummer in a past life


Gideon de Kock is a South African street and commercial photographer based in Hong Kong. What began as a way to scratch a creative itch evolved into something far more when he began documenting the streets of Hong Kong with film. With a photography style that has developed from confrontational and candid to more detailed-oriented investigations, Gideon has built a distinct perspective of contemporary urban environments. His skillful framings and compositions magically turn objects into decorative ornaments and elevate the banal.



Gideon’s goal is to put the mundane on a pedestal, giving voice to underappreciated objects and moments. Sometimes comedic and with a hint of philosophy and existentialism, his images try to make sense of the people and things that make up this chaotic world and offer a more sensitive visual representation of Hong Kong. Playing fast and loose with his camera, Gideon’s adaptive style is candid, documentative, and decidedly street.
