Faces and Destinies: A Photography Exhibition on White Russian Émigrés in Hong Kong and China

Why We Recommend it

This exhibition invites you to explore the lives of White Russian émigrés in the 20th century through photos from personal archives.


As many as 20,000 Russian refugees passed through Hong Kong in the 20th century. They left behind a fascinating historic legacy. This exhibition offers an intimate look into the lives of refugee families who fled to China and Hong Kong.

Faces and Destinies is organised as a part of the Russian Culture Festival, an annual happening offering a window into the culture and creative identity of Hong Kong’s Russian-speaking community.
