我行我攝──香港遊行紀錄 I walk therefore I shoot: a record of Hong Kong demonstrations
Hong Kong, the most liberal city in China, is named by international media as 'City of Protests'. In 2011, a total of 6898 rallies and protests had happened which average to 18.8 times protests every day. This shows how seriously discontent we are with the administration of the government.
This photo book collected 10 critical protests and recorded in images and words some of the remarkable journeys Hong Kong people took to pursue democracy and righteousness.
I hope generations that were born in the Eighties and Nineties and the younger generations would understand from this book how the people who cried in the streets in search of righteousness walk through history.
Were you in the rallies of July 1st, June 4th, Star Ferry Pier, Queen's Pier to Choi Yuen Village? This book will bring you to the scene again and revisit a series of unforgettable times.
