As with all ocean going vessels, long passages —or companionways —zigzag through the museum. While on board ship a companionway may link the bridge to nearby staff quarters, in the case of the museum,display galleries are connected to support are as including the library and research offices.
In an imaginative teaming up with leading photographer Basil Pao, the Hong Kong Maritime Museum has commissioned the artist to create a series of stunning visual images that capture differing aspects of the ocean, for exhibit along the companionways that link A, B, C and D decks. An important theme of this photographic expose is to remind visitors that the world’s oceans occupy by surface, seven tenths of the earth.
