Welcome to our ‘Curator’s Choice’ - a special series dedicated to help you navigate through our curated collection.
As the founder of Destination Deluxe, a wellness and travel publication for the global nomad, Vivienne Tang knows a thing or two about getting under the skin of a city and appreciating good urban photography. The half-Swiss-half-Malaysian wellness guru has called Hong Kong home for the last 19 years and loves how distinctive the city is.
Tang loves Hong Kong’s incredible diversity, and how Bamboo Scenes’ collection of photography art prints is able to capture all the unique facets of this mega city. “I like the fact that Bamboo Scenes is able to tell many different stories about Hong Kong, not only told through photography but also through introducing the photographers via videos, enabling them to share their narratives and tales of the city. I love Kelvin Yuen’s dreamy landscape photography and Elaine Li’s city captures especially,” says Tang.

Curator's Choice Picks
Organised Chaos - Elaine Li
"Organised Chaos" (2017) by Elaine Li - Mong Kok, Hong Kong
This image sums up so many key aspects of this city—the minibuses, the neon lights, and bustling Mongkok. Like the title says, it’s chaos in the most organised form.
Explorer - Kelvin Yuen
"Explorer" (2019) by Kelvin Yuen - Tung Lung Chau, Hong Kong
For me, this artwork represents hope, perseverance, solitude and victory—all familiar topics when you live and pursue a career in Hong Kong. I love that it’s shot on one of the remote islands, showcasing Hong Kong’s beautiful nature.
06 / Sheung Wan, Dina - May N Kasahara
"06 / Sheung Wan, Dina" (2016) by May N Kasahara - Sheung Wan, Hong Kong
There’s something very raw and real about this image, yet beautiful and artistic. With a sensual body juxtaposed against Hong Kong’s high-rise buildings and messy rooftops, it signifies that there’s warmth, beauty, and authenticity to be found between these cold skyscrapers.
Mysterious - Kelvin Yuen
"Mysterious" (2021) by Kelvin Yuen - Hong Kong GeoPark, Hong Kong
On my numerous hikes, I’ve often been fascinated by these trees and my phone is filled with photos of them. Hong Kong’s forests and jungles are very much alive and offer a much-needed refuge from everyday city life. This photo captures a fairytale version of these trees, allowing us to escape into another world. Stunning!
Old Ride, New Splash - Jeremy Cheung
"Old Ride, New Splash" (2020) by Jeremy Cheung - Central, Hong Kong
This is a beautiful capture of the iconic Star Ferry. When everything is being modernised in this city, the Star Ferry still offers some of that old Hong Kong charm from yesteryear.
Light of Mercy - Kevin Mak
"Light of Mercy" (2018) by Kevin Mak - North Point, Hong Kong
This is so very Hong Kong! All these small apartments stacked on top of each other, and the beautiful light blessing and illuminating each one of them create an iconic yet surreal shot of what it means to live in this dynamic city.
