“I’m very excited to embark on this next chapter and share the stories of our artists and their works.” founder Madelon de Grave said.

“We want to push the boundaries of what people think ‘art’ and ‘galleries’ can be to create a truly international art brand that peels back the layers of Hong Kong.”

The exhibition features works by eight local photographers, including 2020 International Landscape Photographer of the Year Kelvin Yun, researcher-turned photographer Jeremy Cheung, and urban visual artist Elaine Li.

The images aim to share with viewers how each photographer experiences the magic of their city through their unique lenses.

Founded in 2017 by Dutch native Madelon de Grave, Bamboo Scenes is a progressive photography art concept that uses the city as its gallery.

“While Hong Kong is the focus, Bamboo Scenes aims to create a fun, inclusive, global community where individuals around the world can discover art in a way that makes sense for them,” it said in a statement.
