Launching Exhibition - “Mother Russia” – A group exhibition by emerging Russian photographers

The buzz: A newly established independent arts space dedicated to photography, The Salt Yard provides a platform for edgy photos from all over the world, with a particular focus on social issues. Operating on a non-profit basis, The Salt Yard will regularly handpick works by both local and overseas photographers to exhibit, and plans to hold five exhibitions per year.

The goods: Its inaugural exhibition “Mother Russia” will showcase work by four female photographers from Russia. The exhibition aims to showcase the image of Russian women from different perspectives. The Salt Yard will also become a sales point for lesser-known photography publications, including those publicized by some photographers using their own funding.

The décor: Named after the traditional use of the area—as Kwun Tong was a salt yard back in the day—the gallery is strongly connected to its base both physically and historically. Décor-wise, the gallery uses plenty of recycled materials, such as discarded, old-fashioned school desks paired with simple white walls. The gallery also includes a small photography library hidden amongst the lockers, and sliding doors separate the gallery from the co-founder’s working area.

The exhibition opens through March 24
