Photographing the Umbrella Revolution

BY AARON ANFINSON
@ VOL 27 ON MAY 25, 2016

Aaron Anfinson shares his experience of photographing the Umbrella Revolution as it unfolded over nearly 3 months in the autumn of 2015 in Hong Kong. What began as a series of peaceful sit-in street protests - against the proposed reforms to the Hong Kong electoral system and the pre-screening of candidates for the Chief Executive election in 2017 - escalated to include more than 100,000 protesters occupying key areas in Admiralty, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok punctuated by violent clashes between students, triads and riot gear clad police armed with batons and tear gas. Anfinson's beat poetry inflected voice sets the scene for his intense emotional images.
