With a series of portraits of people from all over the world, a non-profit social project called Dear Hong Kong celebrates their contribution to Hong Kong in a 200-page photo book.
In addition to the book, Dear Hong Kong is holding an exhibition to share stories and portraits of inspiring people from all around the world who live in the city.
“By documenting stories and humanity, we hope that the book can be a platform to give voice to the voiceless, challenge stereotypes, and promote mutual understanding,” said Dear Hong Kong co-founders Oskar Valles and Aggie Lam.
With the aim of documenting stories from over 150 nationalities, the first volume of Dear Hong Kong features 80 profiles.
The photo book is available at Dear Hong Kong’s website and selected bookstores in the city.
