From night scenes at the Tsing Ma Bridge to the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance and Songkran celebrations in Kowloon City – more than 100 photos depicting a variety of Hong Kong themes will be exhibited at Entrance/Exit J of MTR Central Station. “Impression Hong Kong” is the latest “Art in MTR” exhibition which showcases works from all across Hong Kong by members of the United Photographers Hong Kong. Divided into zones namely Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories, the exhibition turns the distinctive local flavour of different districts into a feast for the eyes for those who visit Central Station – whether as part of their daily journey or simply to appreciate the works.
“There is a diversity of themes but one commonality – all of the photographs are documentary and realistic in nature as our members refrained from touching up the pictures with technology. Besides showing the stunning beauty of our city, we also want to tell the stories of what we managed to capture with our lens for generations to come,” said Mr Victor Cheng, Founding President of United Photographers Hong Kong.
“’Impression Hong Kong’ shows our city from different angles and the local characteristics showcased are close to our heart at MTR Corporation. The MTR is an integral part of the city and we take pride in being the operator of a railway network that serves and grows with Hong Kong and its people,” said Ms Linda So, Corporate Affairs Director of MTR Corporation.
“Impression Hong Kong” is the latest art exhibition of the “Art in MTR” programme under the Corporation’s “Community Connect” platform. “Art in MTR” provides a platform for aspiring artists, designers and talented individuals in the creative industries to showcase their works to the community. The objective of this programme is to enhance passengers’ travelling experience through easy access to different art elements including live performances, short-term art exhibitions and permanent displays of art pieces.
