When freedom of opinion and expression means inciting the subversion of state power;
When freedom of political means endangering the safety of state…
When freedom of gathering means disrupting public order;
When freedom of thoughts means provoking crimes;
When the police become our enemy and the law becomes the weapon for the government to violate human right;
What can we rely on to protect us?
Tam hoi Ying, the Chinese-Hong Kong photographer, grew up in the former Colony of British, the exceptional free land in China. Enjoyed the modest democracy & freedom while in the same time, was traumatized by the heavy-hand actions being taken by the communist government towards their own people, to suppress freedom.
Feeling the obligation to raise the awareness for the human right condition in China, the photographer brings together a series of images, to challenge the paradox for the law to protect & suppress freedom of people, and question the fragility of the China’s regime.
