The People Dissent

  10AM TO 8PM

French Ministry of Culture production grant for female photojournalists

Since June 2019, protests have rocked Hong Kong. What began as a mass movement against proposed legislation to authorize extradition to mainland China, became an overwhelming indicator of growing discontent with the Chinese Communist Party. “The People Dissent” is about the hope of young protestors living and continuing to live in hope, despite the increasingly bleak prospects for the political future of Hong Kong. It is about their perseverance, for they have no future to lose, and are holding out against the inevitable, i.e. China’s stranglehold over political power.
