就記番起40多年前 (Just remember more than forty years ago)
'Just remember more than forty years ago', a memoir derived from a personal photographic album, delivers the narrative of Hong Kong during the period of the late sixties to the early eighties. Depicting a father's memories of the moments surrounding his emigration from Hong Kong to the United Kingdom, the different stories coincide and illustrate the 70's through themes of tradition, country and origin. Based on an old family album predating the birth of the photographer, this photobook contextualises the photo album with supporting material and the father's recollections. Ma merges the photographs with carefully selected ephemera in order to tell the narrative of his father's journey. By recording his father's memories, the photographer seeks to protect them for posterity.
