Oct 1 Evening - 120mm Film

After a day of documenting unrest on Oct 1, I ventured out to grab a bowl of noodles. I brought my GSW90II to grab some street photography on the way but I didn’t realize protests were still kicking off further down the road.

Mong Kok saw some heavy clashes between Protestors and Police, however by the time night came around the groups had moved further along Nathan road. Smalls groups of locals and journalists stood around chatting about what they saw that day. It was a pretty surreal and calm moment after a day of complete chaos.

Hong Kong Sept 27 - 28

On Sept 28, 2019, people gathered in Edinburgh Park to bring attention to the victims of the San Uk Ling Holding Centre whom have alleged police abuse while in custody. Speakers took to the stage to relay their experiences to the crowd.

The following day another rally was called nearby. Thousands of people gathered in Tamar Park to chant and sing protest songs. Afterwards some protestors headed to the gates of the HK Government Complex to express their frustrations. Police retaliated with tear gas and water cannons. After a few hours the protestors disappeared into the streets.

The American Southwest on 35mm Film

The southwest is surely the most spectacular place in the continental United States. Years of touring brought me close enough for a peek, but I knew I had to find a way to spend some time taking it in. Lucky for me, a friend of mine was driving from Toronto to Nevada for Burning Man and offered me a seat for a camping trip on his way out. These photos are some of my favourite film shots from that journey. All are available as prints on my shop.

We started in Colorado for our first hike, feeling prepared and fit, we tackled a fourteen thousand foot beast known as Mount Elbert. This was a mistake for our first hike as no one was acclimatized to the attitude yet. On the way to summit, I nearly gave up 3 times and turned around, but with my friend’s encouragement I summited the frickin thing through darkened eyes and a nauseous stomach.
