Vancouver's Chinatown is full of beautiful and interesting photo opportunities. For the next month you can have your Chinatown photo on display at Kee's Laundry Gallery on 228 East Georgia, and also online through their gallery site (be patient and give it a few minutes to load- it's worth it!). Using the popular photo sharing application Instagram, you can take a photo and give it the hashtag #chinatownyvr to have it included in the gallery and online.
The exhibition is curated/sponsored by the advertising agency St. Bernadine Mission Communications. According to the Kee's Laundry site, the agency moved to Chinatown in 2011 and wanted to do something to celebrate their new neighbourhood. What a great idea! Because Kee's Laundry is a window gallery, you can go and view the exhibition from the street anytime of day or night.
If you're curious about how Kee's Laundry got it's name, they have a little bit of history here - looks like they did a little archival research!
