With a mission of observing and presenting Hong Kong with a modern perspective, La Galerie represents artists including Camille Levert, Cyril Delettre, Catherine Henriette, and Anat Givon who share the same method in their approaches. Their works embody the characteristics of the collision and integration of East and West cultures in the city of Hong Kong. 

La Galerie values local talents - from established artists as Almond Chu to emerging young artists like Kayee C. Asian art scene is also represented through Zeng Nian, Zhang Kechun and Chow Ching-Hui.

The gallery aims to bring photography to everyone’s life.


With its French background, the gallery has brought more than photography from Europe across the continents: Nicolas Lefeuvre’s contemporary expression of landscapes with ink, contemporary street icon Okuda San Miguel’s geometric acrylic patterns, and the fine art master Pablo Picasso’s etching prints. 


For years, Marie-Florence Gros and Cyril Delettre have shared the same passion for photography. They also worked together, successfully combining their skills and creative minds to build several artistic projects, including text and photography exhibitions as well as short films.  Coming to Hong Kong, the 2 founders have been totally captivated by the energy that drives the city. They then decided to share with the public their passion and expertise opening La Galerie, right in the heart of the Asian art scene: La Galerie, Paris, 1839.


Why Paris,1839 ?


Photography has experienced real development as an artistic medium around the world in recent decades.  The idea of photographs as a cultural medium was born in 1839, when the French government purchased Daguerre’s patent to « offer it to the world ». However, it would take one century for photography to be recognised as an art form. MoMA (USA) – The Museum of Modern Art established its first photography department in 1940. Today, photographs are exhibited in museums around the world and auction sales have exploded over the past 25 years.

The gallery is one of the first art spaces to focus on fine art photography in Hong Kong.
