• Ilse Bing - Paris and Beyond

    17.06.2020 – 19.12.2020

    Admission Fee: HKD100 for adults, HKD50 for students and seniors aged 65 or above. Free admission for disabled people and children aged 11 or below.



    F11 Foto Museum is proud to present the “Ilse Bing – Paris and Beyond” exhibition, featuring over 100 works of this influential female photographer who helped turn Paris into the centre of modern photography in the 1930s. A majority of the vintage prints in this collection were taken at the height of Bing’s photography career in Paris, while the rest reflect her drastic change of her spirit after war influence. This exhibition is an image memoir of Bing’s dramatic life in the face of stark reality.

    Born to a wealthy Jewish family in Frankfurt in 1899, “Queen of the Leica” Ilse Bing was once amongst the very first few women photographers to influentially master the avant-garde handheld Leica 35mm camera in the 1930s. She was also amongst the first to use solarisation, electronic flash and night photography, and established her own distinctive photographic style adoring romanticism, symbolism and dream imagery of surrealism. She died in 1998, just a few days before her 99th birthday.

    Her work can be found in many major public collections including theMetropolitan Museum of Art; the Museum of Modern Art; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Art Institute of Chicago; and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

    “Ilse Bing – Paris and Beyond” is a Le French May associated project.


    F11攝影博物館將舉辦「Ilse Bing – 超越巴黎」展覽,展出這位把1930年代巴黎變成現代攝影殿堂的女攝影師逾100張作品。這個系列大部分早期原作照片攝於巴黎,時為Bing攝影生涯的巔峰,其他作品則記錄了她戰後急劇改變的精神面貌。因此,是次展覽是Bing面對無情現實的影像回憶錄。

    1899年,Ilse Bing生於法蘭克福富裕猶太家庭,被譽為“徠卡女王”,是1930年代少數使用當時最前衛的35mm可擕式徠卡相機的女攝影師之一。Bing同時亦是其中一位最早使用中途曝光、電子閃光燈和夜間攝影的攝影師。她獨特的攝影風格揉合了浪漫主義,象徵主義和超現實主義的夢境意象。她於1998年99歲生日前去世 。


    「Ilse Bing – 超越巴黎」是法國五月藝術節的聯辦節目。

  • HONG KONG the way it was

    3 Oct 2019 – 31 Mar 2020

    ***In the face of coronavirus, we require every visitor to wear a mask for admission.
    Thank you for your cooperation.


    Celebrating its 5th birthday, F11 Foto Museum is proud to present “HONG KONG the way it was”, an exhibition of over 130 beautiful photos taken in 1959 -1960 by Ed van der Elsken (1925 – 1990), one of the most influential Dutch photographers in the 20th century. This will be the first time the HONG KONG series is shown in its entirety.

    In this collection, van der Elsken shows his great warmth and hope for old Hong Kong, which he described as the “prettiest of harbour cities” during his 13-month round-the-world trip.  While staying in Hong Kong for three weeks, he was able to capture the essence of cityscapes, town views and people of the city at that time.  There is a touch of familiarity in these prints, yet there are also many fascinating “new” objects, practices and building structures that are long gone.  Through van der Elsken’s eyes, visitors can reminisce and discover the disappeared Hong Kong of times past.

    The exhibition is open for public viewing from 2pm to 7pm, Tuesdays to Saturdays (closed on Sundays, Mondays and public holidays). Please email to info@f11.com, or call 6516 1122 for group visit appointment.

    Admission Fee: HKD100 for adults.  HKD50 for students and seniors aged 65 or above.  Free admission for the disabled and children aged 11 or below.

    Guided tours are available every Saturday and they are free with Museum admission. To reserve, please click the session below:

    Thank you for your cooperation.



    為慶祝成立5週年,F11攝影博物館特意舉辦 《HONG KONG the way it was》 展覽,展出逾130張由二十世紀其中一位最具影響力的荷蘭攝影師埃德·凡·德·埃爾斯肯(Ed van der Elsken) (下簡稱「Ed」) (1925 – 1990) 於1959年至1960年間在香港拍攝的早期原作照片。

    這個香港的攝影系列處處流露攝影師對被他譽為「最美麗的港口城市」的喜愛和期許 。 凡·德·埃爾斯肯在1959和1960年的十三個月環球旅行中,曾兩度訪港,用三個星期捕捉當時香港的城市景觀和社會人生百態。這個系列除了有很多令人覺得似曾相識的畫面外,也有許多「前所未見」的影像如一些早已消失在時代洪流的生活細節及建築物。通過凡·德·埃爾斯肯的眼睛,觀眾可以再一次回味、審視香港那段已經逝去的歲月。

    展覽逢星期二至星期六(星期日、星期一及公眾假期休館),下午2時至7時開放予公眾參觀。團體參觀可電郵至info@f11.com ,或致電6516 1122預約。

  • Museum Leica Photo Exhibition


    7 July 2018 – 31 October 2018

    This photo exhibition by Lars Netopil from Wetzlar, Germany, also a consultant to Leica Camera and Vice President of Leica Historica e.V., features 68 images from the <Museum Leica> book which provides a preview of the new Leica Factory Museum collection to be shown at the recently completed Leitz Park.

  • Alexander Rodchenko: Everything - Experiment

    28 October 2017 – 31 March 2018

    The 130 images of Rodchenko selected for this exhibition are exceptional work of art, covering subjects ranging from the city of Moscow to portraits of artists and intellectuals. The photos reflect the brightness of Rodchenko’s creation in an era of enormous changes in the Russian society, following the Revolution and an increasingly dangerous political environment under Josef Stalin.  Millions were persecuted and expressions not endorsed by the authority could lead to personal danger for the artist, his/her friends and family.  The threats never deterred Rodchenko and his desire to create.  We hope visitors could experience through the lens of his camera the response of Rodchenko to his times.  A dialogue between the artist and the visitor which “could reach the very heart of human kind,” in the words of expert Professor Philippe Sers.
