Leica x Swire: February 24-March 4, 2012

Having regularly worked with up-and-coming artists at its Opposite House in Beijing and Upper House in Hong Kong, Swire Hotels will hold a joint exhibition of works by four young photographers from each city from February 24-March 4. A collaboration with the German camera and optics maker Leica, the exhibition follows two themes tailored to each property: “Beijing Opposites” at the Opposite House and “Hong Kong Views From the Top” at the Upper House.

Works from each photographer featured in the exhibitions showcases a mix of new perspectives on the hotels, as interpreted through the lenses of different Leica cameras — both digital and film — by a set of “post-80s generation” photographers: Madi Ju, Hanchao, Mandy Yeung and Xue Tan.

In addition to the photos shot by the four young artists, the exhibitions will include the top five winning submissions from the Upper House and Opposite House Facebook and Weibo pages, as voted on from October to December of last year.
