One year has passed since Hong Kong’s pro-democracy Occupy protests erupted in Admiralty and spread across the city.

As demonstrators once again converged on the site where it all began, photographer and City University researcher Dan Garrett was there to document the scenes at the Umbrella Movement’s first anniversary.
