她說 —— 鏡頭下的少數族裔香港女性
She says - Photographing Ethnic Minority Women of Hong Kong
When we look beyond our differences in race, religion, customs and languages, we have the most defining similarities – we are all human, with the same thirst for self actualization, freedom to pursue our dreams and the need of being understood, appreciated and accepted.
In collaboration with Unison, this project focused on ethnic minority women living in Hong Kong. To make the women feel at ease, we made it a point to carry out the shoot at their respective comfort zones so that they can be calm and confident in front of the camera. In the process, I forgot the racial differences between us. They became our friends, sharing with us their kindness, confidence, their rich personality and the immense faith to grasp their destiny. I wish that my photos can do justice to the spirit of these exemplary women.
Humans communicate with more than spoken language; the eyes often communicate better than words. I believe a soulful portrait speaks a thousand words; it can bring to life the nature and the story of a person – I hope this series of portraits can let you truly ‘see’ these women and ‘listen’ to what they tell us.
