Occupy Central: A Monochrome Meditation

All images were taken with one camera, one lens, on the same roll of film and on the same day.

 

This is a visual meditation on Occupy Central.

Once upon a time, Occupy Central was an idea. It was an event that was yet to come.

It then became an event.

It will be an event that is always already present, even if it ends today or at some point in the future.

 

At Admiralty.

    老師,我知道你看得懂中文
    很想說,我始終覺得黑白最有感染力;很想說,感謝你一直以來以文字影像,跟我們在一起,讓我們(至少,我)在這五十多天,即使疲累,即使精神狀態偶爾接近崩潰,我們不孤單;很想說,現在快三點半,我讀這blog post,眼睛决堤…
    好一句”always already present”,還有,the first photo is very powerful!

      Thank you, Janice – I do understand. How many nights have you spent on the streets?
