This exhibition showcases the last body of work of prominent photographer Fan Ho as embodied in the book project ‘Portrait of Hong Kong’. For this final endeavour the celebrated and much-loved photographer and film director, Fan Ho, went through his extensive archive of negatives to compile a of series of work that had not previously been published. In 2015 Fan Ho selected about 500 old negatives from his own archive which he then cropped in his signature style. After the deeply unfortunate event of his passing, it took another year for the project to be completed with the help of his family and Sarah Greene. The flow of images takes you on a journey travelling from West to East of Hong Kong Island, starting with the boat people, moving through construction and modernisation, across the harbour to Kowloon side, ending in the New Territories and the quiet waters of Hong Kong.

Michael Kenna is one of today’s most important and influential black & white landscape photographers. This exhibition, curated by Blue Lotus Gallery, focuses on a subject most dear to Kenna: trees. Good trees grow slowly, and those with strong resilience situated in good conditions can live for thousands of years. Each tree has its own story to tell. The viewing pleasure of Kenna’s work is likewise connected to a change of pace, close focusing, and a meditation of sorts. One cannot help but wonder, if these trees could talk, what would they tell us?
This exhibition is curated by Blue Lotus Gallery as a pop-up at Usagi gallery off Hollywood Road,

Blue Lotus Gallery is proud to present Sweet Sorrow, Wing Shya’s photographic ode to our desolate human condition. Sweet Sorrow reads as a techni-colour love letter to the city that raised him: Hong Kong. Our city serves as a backdrop to what is really going on in the psyche of the “Me Generation” who grew up with smart phones and a heightened attention to all things visual. This epic production which came with price tag of 3 million hkd, involving a creativie team close to a 100 people, Sweet Sorrow may be the most visually gratifying work ever produced in Hong Kong to tackle a subject so intimate and personal as finding the sweet in the sorrow.
For the past 13 years Jo Farrell have been photographing some of the last remaining women with bound feet in China. She has interviewed all these women about their foot binding and their lives during the Cultural Revolution and the great famine in China. She has just published a new book illustrated with photos and stories from 50 of these women. The majority are between the ages of 80 and 100 years old and are from Shandong and Yunnan Provinces. These women come from peasant backgrounds and have lived incredible lives working in the fields despite their bound feet. Farrell's work looks beyond their feet and captures a piece of history for generations to come.
