About “Remember”

It is not because there is hope that we resist, but only if you resist can there be hope…. The people of Hong Kong

In 2019 Hong Kong was on fire. This unforgettable memory bore witness to the fracturing of an era. For 30 years, candles for June 4 have been lit in Victoria Park. To defend the home of freedom, democracy, and the rule of law, the people of Hong Kong showed heaven and earth with their outcry to boost their courage. This city of heroes loudly sang out: “ Glory to Hong Kong !”

June 4, 2019 was the first time I took part in for the June Four Candlelight Vigil rally in Victoria Park in Hong Kong. I was shattered, moved, ashamed. Afterwards I focused on the protest marches in Hong Kong against the China extradition bill. The spiritual force of the people of Hong Kong inspired my soul to photograph, to video and perform, and immersing myself in the witnessing of this history was unforgettable and remember.
