HONG KONG kaleidoscope — a photo exhibition by community group HKInstayay — showcased Hong Kong through the eyes of Instagrammers. I’m honored that two of my photos were featured at Dominion Garden in Wan Chai near Pacific Place 3. The exhibition was on view for one week only, from December 7 to December 14.
The photos were printed on canvas and displayed with a bamboo support structure, resembling Hong Kong’s unique bamboo scaffolding. This project was crowd-funded by the artists in the exhibition, friends and supporters. The exhibition was also part of the Very Hong Kong Festival, a community-driven initiative to bring together local artists, designers and other creative professionals.
A huge shout-out to the mastermind behind HONG KONG Kaleidoscope, a non-commercial project to display local art at public space: Lie Fhung, who is the curator and initiator of this project.
HKInstayay is a community of Instagram enthusiasts, which the group gathered to do photo-walks once a month. I participated the very first photo-walk back in March 2011.
