"The struggle of man against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting."Scars and bruises may fade, but we must remember what caused them. The purpose of《Wounds of Hong Kong》is to record police brutality. All 24 interviewees have sacrificed in their own ways during the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill Movement. Among the thousands wounded, they are only a few. I would like to sincerely thank them for sharing their experience, insights, and feelings to me. I remember at the beginning of the resistance outbreak in June of 2019. As a photographer/journalist, I felt unsure. Protesters all covered their faces with masks, so how could I tell their stories? How can I search their ethos beneath the masks? However, my worry was quickly swept away as I realized that they weren't the only ones fighting, so were you and I. Apart from the street clashes, the daily challenges these protesters face also reflect the problems in Hong Kong's society. For example, after being injured by the police, teenagers may not able to go home due to their pro-establishment parents. That begs the question, shouldn't a 'home' be a place for recovery? When someone was injured on the head with blood streaming down his face, the only thing on his mind was about whether or not he could still travel the next day and risk his girlfriend being upset. Later, a district councilor was attacked in a middle-class housing estate. The background of the suspect reflected that red capital was driving up property prices in Hong Kong. The Chinese Communist Party's power had rooted itself deeply into every sector and class of Hong Kong. Housing problems are major worries for Hong Kong citizens. Because it is impossible to afford the cost of a studio, the photograph locations were almost always at public places like back alleys and parks. I had to hide the backgrounds. The thing that worried me more was being disturbed by the police when I was in the middle of a shoot. (Ko Chung Ming on Kickstarter).
