In the summer of 2019, Hong Kong entered the era of protesting. The extradition bill amendment triggered the largest protest in Hong Kong’s history. From primary school students to the elderly, people are taking to the streets to express their discontent at the government. The movement is leaderless. Everyone is taking the initiative to join the movement and playing their own role. Organizing rally and march, non-cooperation movement, general strike-they are our footsteps on the road of liberating Hong Kong.

The photo book connects the perspectives of eight young independent photographers. Their record at the front line is collected in this book, so that the year in which we have been awaken for freedom can be preserved. It also serves as a reminder for us to remember our faith.

Hong Kong marks the first anniversary of the protest. We have inherited sentiment and belief in the past; we have insisted and waited for our future-we are linked by our destiny. Photos will witness Hong Kong history and eventually prove us right.

二零一九年初夏,香港進入了抗爭時代。《逃犯條例》修訂案觸發香港史上最大型的示威浪潮,小學生以至長者都走上街頭表達對政府的不信任。這場社會運動沒有大台,全由群眾自發參與、各司其職,組織集會遊行、不合作運動、全民三罷等抗爭行動,揭開光復香港的序幕。

攝影集串連八位年輕獨立攝影師的視野,將他們在前線的記錄濃縮成書集,務求把香港人為自由而覺醒的一年好好保存,亦願警惕在世的我們,毋忘初心。

抗爭運動來到一週年,香港人從過去繼承了各種情感與信念,更為未來一直在堅持,在等待,因為大家的命運早已緊扣;而相片,會為香港歷史的進程作見證,還已逝去的香港一個公道。.
