Opened in 2015 by Hong-Kong born photographer Liu Heung Shing, the Shanghai Center of Photography's unique museum consists of a labyrinth of small rooms of varying shape and size, all extending from one central space. The elegant architecture and minimalist design makes it the perfect place to display some of the art world's classic photographic works. Previous exhibitions have included a retrospective of the work of trusted Hollywood photographer Brigitte Lacombe. Just around the corner from the Yuz Museum in the West Bund art area, the gallery provides a wonderfully quiet refuge from some of the city's more eccentric art spaces.
