Hong Kong used to be called as a cultural desert but the city has actually transformed into an art hub in Asia during the past few few years. We can date back to 2013 when Art Basel launched its inaugural show in Hong Kong. And in 2016, Art Basel attracted more than 70,000 visitors from various countries in 5 days. The tickets were sold out on the last day afternoon. At the same time, Art Central logged over 32,000 visitors. This trend has helped Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze to establish his photographer career in Hong Kong and many of us to rediscover this city.
