Well, it’s time. I can’t begin to say how grateful I am to showcase this body of work of my travels in Asia. It is a book that I hope will find the right publisher who sees what I see. ‘The Beauty Within’ is my love for architecture, construction. Each city or village, people live and enjoy the very simple things that all begin with design.
ArcLight Culver City is located at 9500 Culver Blvd., in Downtown Culver City. A very special thank you to Kale Hills, Gordon Cheung, Paul Tam @ Digital Force, and Joe Wong.
'The Beauty Within' premieres at the ArcLight Culver City Cinema in Los Angeles !
A bygone era; let’s hope not. Capturing classic fun treats of daily life in Hong Kong. This feeling of the past, of having seen this before, is the essence of the Déjà Vu Collection. Highlighting a closer look at the details, I wanted the viewer to see and appreciate that everything is neat, tidy and perfectly unnoticed.

Our Art Bridge programme invites artists in Hong Kong to showcase their works which are inspired by the dynamism and diversity of the city. We unveil to you our community artist exhibition by Monique Lai who makes an unflinching statement and deep dive into the beauty of Hong Kong. The photographs are a visual feast of the most traditional and yet bold culture of life aspects of the city. – Hotel Stage
Mid-way during the exhibition, I decided to feature a special wall with four images on magnets. Here I wanted the guests to have fun and play. This simple instruction triggered an instinctive reaction where each placed the frames as they wish. It was a beautiful insight to see their unguarded personality come alive with design.
