Wong Kin Wah (78), better known as Master Wong, is one of the last neon masters in Hong Kong. For over sixty years he has been creating the gas discharge lights in his workshop in the Mong Kok neighbourhood of the city. In the 1970s there are thought to have been hundreds of glass benders making neon signs across Hong Kong. Now, there are estimated to be fewer than ten.
