Occupy Hong Kong
Occupy Hong Kong documents the Occupy Central demonstrations during the October National Holiday of 2014. Shot at the protest sites of Mong Kok in Kowloon and Admiralty on Hong Kong island, the series depicts a variety of events including clashes between civilians and students, dense public rallies, and night-time vigils. It attempts to record the diversity of groups involved: the ardent convictions of young demonstrators, heated reactions of local bystanders, and the tentative impartiality of policemen and women. Their multiplicity of sentiments is testament to the complexity of Hong Kong’s political status and range of social issues being contended.
