Curator's Choice: Mei Ming Leung

Welcome to our ‘Curator’s Choice’ - a special series dedicated to help you navigate through our curated collection. 

Hong Kong Photography Curator Manager Mei Ming Leung

Mei Ming Leung - Manager at Bamboo Scenes

I am a Chinese-Australian art & culture enthusiast who was born in Sydney and grew up in Hong Kong.  And I have always been fascinated in how artists can capture a single moment in time or narrative to express an array of emotions or to tell a story. 

I am drawn to Bamboo Scenes because the focus isn’t just about capturing the city, but there is focus on sharing the stories of our artists and the stories of the city through photography.

My passion for the arts led me to doing a Masters in Museums & Galleries and the Creative Economy in London. I have gained practical gallery, creative business and events experience gained through roles at art galleries, an arts & event PR consultancy, co-working, and private members club.

Bamboo Scenes artists have shown me areas of the city that I have never seen. And now I invite you to discover some of my favourite photographs from our curated art collection. 

Old Ride, New Splash - Jeremy Cheung

Hong Kong Photography Art Jeremy Cheung Old Ride New Splash

Not only is this a great vision of the classic Star Ferry, but the pine green water is an icon of Hong Kong. Victoria Harbour always triggers nostalgic memories for me so I love the feelings this image brings up for me. 

An Island - Kelvin Yuen

Hong Kong Photography Art  Kelvin Yuen - An Island

We tend to forget that 70% of the city is covered in nature. I really like how Kelvin has captured the surreal tranquility of the city’s natural landscapes—it’s a side of the city not many people see.


Crash Landing - Elaine Li

Hong Kong Photography Art Elaine Li - Crash Landing

This photo stands out to me because it’s so unique. I’m fascinated by the accidental hashtag shape created by the arrangement of the residential buildings, and the bizarre, land-bound cruise ship shopping mall that’s famous in this part of Hong Kong.” 


Generations Collide - Elaine Li

Hong Kong Photography Art Elaine Li - Generations Collide

This is such a classic Hong Kong photo with a quiet mountain and tranquil sky overlooking the cluster of towering skyscrapers. This is home for me. 


02 / Sai Ying Pun - Dina - May N Kasahara 

Hong Kong Photography Art May N Kasahara - 02 _ Sai Ying Pun, Dina

I like the aesthetic of contrasting Dina’s peace and stillness against the chaotic residential architecture of the buildings that surround her.


The Old Man and The Birds - Gideon de Kock

Hong Kong Photography Art Gideon de Kock - The Old Man And The Birds

This is such a quintessentially Hong Kong tradition captured in one photo. It’s a dying trade, so it’s important that we capture its existence while we still can.
