Blue Lotus gallery will soon showcase “The Labyrinth,” its latest exhibition of photographs by Christopher Button.

The exhibition – which is due to open in September – consists of a selection of late-night photos Button took in deserted Hong Kong MTR stations and presents “a glimpse into the oddly-quiet side of one of the busiest locations in Hong Kong,” the gallery said.

“When everyone else calls it a day, when the stations are deprived of their regular flock, he immerses himself in the vastness of Hong Kong’s confined underground channels, and embraces a rare moment of solitude in what is usually hectic,” the gallery added.

The city has seen more than a year of restrictions imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic, and Button’s work might “…reflect how some of us are feeling trapped in a changed environment charged with new restrictions and rules.”
