“What started as an idea to open up the local art scene in one of the most photogenic cities in the world, has now grown into a thriving community of photographers and art enthusiasts, with meaningful photo art prints on walls in Hong Kong and beyond. Bamboo Scenes Photography Gallery is turning one, and that is worth a celebration!” the gallery said.
