Since June 2019, Hong Kong has become synonymous with protests. The strategic idea of ‘Be Water’ has influenced lots of other frontliners of freedom and democracy all over the world.

The controversial bill proposed by the Hong Kong government which allows criminal suspects to be extradited from Hong Kong to mainland China has triggered a massive opposition. Nearly 2 million people joined a peaceful protest and marched peacefully in June 2019. It has also sparked a freedom and democracy movement across the city. The bill was withdrawn in September 2019. However, Hong Kong has degenerated into a police state and the human rights situation is alarming.
Undoubtedly, Hong Kong people have been drawn to what we call the ‘Revolution of Our Times’. The ‘Time’ belongs to everyone who believes and embraces liberty, regardless of age and generation. Until now, this persistent resistance is still a joint effort.
In this exhibition, we bring viewers to the Hong Kong protests’ frontlines. Tensions between the police and the protesters are being recorded by Hong Kong photojournalists constantly. Through their lenses and captured images, we believe a more balanced viewpoint about the Hong Kong freedom and democracy movement can be shown to the world.
