I have been photographing protests in Hong Kong since the Umbrella Movement demonstrations of 2014. In my time there, it became obvious to me that Hong Kong and its struggle against China is a real testing ground for understanding modern political power. What are people left to do, when the status quo works in the service of oppression? What are citizens prepared to do to bring about the world in which they want to live? Hong Kong is going to answer many of these questions, and we would all do well to pay attention to the answers. This same fight will be taking place in our streets soon enough, and your government and your police will not necessarily be on your side.
