17 Sep – Hong Kong-based photographer and close friend to the late Leslie Cheung Wing Shya recently released a memorial photo collection for the star, as reported on Net Ease website.
On Leslie's 57th birthday on 12 September, Wing launched the photo book entitled "Miss You Much Leslie Cheung" at a bookstore located in Tsim Sha Tsui.
The 49-year-old photographer revealed that he had been preparing for the photo book release for over a year, "The first edition will have only 5000 copies. It costs HKD 550 (app. USD 70.93) each and its proceeds will be donated to Leslie's favourite charity organisations, which include Children's Cancer Foundation."
When asked what makes it different from the "Love Leslie" photo book, Wing revealed that 80 percent of the "Miss You Much Leslie Cheung" photo book is made up of never-before-seen photos of the actor.
He disclosed, "When I was younger, I would choose photos that were taken from a commercial angle. But now I would pay more attention towards photos that have a deeper message."
