I'm very grateful to Leica and Douglas So for inviting me, Huang Jing, Mark Liu, and a few other photographers and enthusiasts to visit Douglas' F11 photography museum and his upcoming new project in Hong Kong yesterday. We also had the opportunity to chat with Leica Chairman Dr Andreas and Mrs Kauffman over dinner. For photography enthusiasts, F11 is a must-see! It is a beautifully restored 5-storey heritage building in Happy Valley housing an incredible collection of vintage cameras, photography books, and prints. The current exhibition is of Werner Bischof's work in Hong Kong in the 1950's. Douglas’ new project nearby is even more impressive! Since it is still a work-in-progress (he plans to open later this year) I will only share a few images of parts of the amazing interior design already circulating on the Internet, perhaps to act as teasers! Suffice to say, I believe it will address the needs of photography enthusiasts at the very highest end of the market, not just for Hong Kong, but also for mainland China and Asia! Thank you Douglas and Leica Asia/China (Jane Cui and Siegmund Sudek)!
