About the Book
“domestic-life-colour-book”, the long poem, is a suite of photographs I made during the lockdown period. The first image was taken on March 5, wrapped up with the last photograph on June 28, 2020. Working on the coda of this poem is a sad prelude to dark days - the inconceivable, cumbrous, repressive black clouds mushrooming all over Hong Kong. In this book, amidst my poised but unspoken, constantly changing moods, I’ve kept the original sequence of the diptychs when they were first created and published on my blog.
