When the storm came

Marc Fernandes | Hong Kong

In Tamar park, on 9 November 2019, during a wake in memory of Alex Chow, a protesters who died after falling from height in a car park, a tearful elderly lady hugs a protester, regretting her generation did do more to protect their generation.

A chronicle in images of the Hong Kong protests and their repression. I tried to be the closest to the action, and the closer possible to the people protesting, in order to talk about them as individuals caught into something bigger than them. It has often been pointed out that the Hong Kong protests were leaderless. Because of this lack of leaders, the protests had something both of naive and at times (in the later stages) gratuitous.

I don't try to stick an ideology or a "vision" on images. I am just there to chronicle what happpens as an impartial observer.
