This project is to preserve several thousand unique, historic, and culturally significant color negatives shot in the People’s Republic of China. In 1984 and 1985, when many areas were not yet open to most foreigners, I photographed Guangzhou, Hainan, Beijing, Wuhan, and other places in the PRC. These images are not a comprehensive documentation of life in the PRC, but an honest, intimate and personal portrait of newfound friends and intriguing sights during a period of innocence, mutual curiosity, and openness just prior to an overwhelming cultural convergence. These are images of China on the Edge of Modernization.
My name is Kat. At 15, I sold my body to survive. Kat is just one of many young Hong Kong girls who, due to life circumstances, entered prostitution as a means of survival. It is 2017, as Hong Kong becomes more affluent, these girls become more and more left behind. Keys for Girls campaign hopes to crowdfund Financial Assistance Scholarships for as many as 20 local young girls like Kat. Through education, our goal is to unlock doors of opportunity for these girls, to improve their future outlook, empower them to change and nurture their potential as young females.

Countless disabled people, especially the physically disabled ones are unable to get budgeted and comfortable in the open economy.

Everyone wants to look aesthetically beautiful but how about them?
