Hong Kong saw a long day of tear gas, Molotov cocktails and destruction across multiple districts on China’s National Day, culminating in the shooting of an 18-year-old protester at the hands of riot police. Thomas Boarder shot a 360° frontline, 2k-resolution feature from the protests on Hong Kong Island for HKFP, taking a blast from the water cannon in the process. Use your mouse or phone’s gyroscope to navigate around the scene, or connect to a VR headset for an all-immersive view.
