The Nature of Water, a historic photojournalism and commentary book, captures the people, places and culture that shaped the 2019 anti-extradition law protests and the ultimate fate of Hong Kong.
The title refers to the protesters’ self-proclaimed philosophy in the face of police action, inspired by the Bruce Lee quote – ”Be Water.”
Over 50 photographers contributed to the book.
“With intense and intimate photojournalism, protest artwork created by the citizens of Hong Kong, and scannable content that allows readers to hear the stories of photojournalists in their own words, this book is an artifact and a record of the historic events shaping Hong Kong, politics in the Pacific Rim, and the world at large,” a press statement read.
“[B]ehaving as water, flowing en masse through the city in search of gathering moments, citizens of all ages carried out several of the largest protests ever documented in the world,” it added.
