While travelling throughout China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Laos, 23 talented international photographers have captured Asian « light, hope and dynamism ». They invite us to come and admire their vision through this unique and outstanding art exhibition in Hong Kong.

Under the curation of Christel Villepelet and with vibrant inspiration, these artists produce original artwork and present their distinctive perspective on Asia’s innovative vitality, traditional values and cross-cultural influences. Take this opportunity to discover Asia in all its splendour and its symphony of vibrant colours, intense feelings and deep memories.

The French photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagreze and his piece "Blue Moment" echoes with the chiaroscuro of the Belgian artist Jean-Pierre Ruelle. Other French photographers will also showcase their works during the exhibition.

All participating artists generously agreed to give their time and their artwork. The sums collected by the sale of photographs and paintings will be donated to Children of the Mekong to finance two projects in the Philippines: 8 nurseries on the landfill of Cebu to accommodate 80 children up to 4 years old and part of a student center in Cebu City for 60 underprivileged young adults.
