‘“Good day good night,” coming from strangers, who are also fellows. It is a simple yet strong sentence, which makes me still feel warm about this city.’

Traversing through the days and nights of the two months of the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong in 2014, the photographic works of South Ho intentionally avoid scenes of howling protests; instead he reverts to the quotidian perspective of the occupier, documenting another kind of landscape which is quiet and calm. These images constitute also the artist’s own confession in regards to the movement – where passion and loss interweave into a tangled sense of paradox and futility. — from the publisher's website

Produced in conjunction with South Ho's solo exhibition at Blindspot Gallery, this folio contains three booklets featuring black and white photographs by South Ho plus a fourth volume featuring essays by John Batten and Law Lok Man.
