HOPEFULLY WHAT BETWEEN US
LASTS AS THE STARS
Hong Kong has four departure flight paths, one of which is above Victoria Harbour (the mother harbour of Hong Kong). The photos were taken of the departing flights passing upon the harbour and under the twinkling stars.
Emigration has been a trend in Hong Kong since 2019. Despite global travel restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people on flights have determinedly relocated to new homes far away from their motherland. During the period of the photos taken from August to November 2021, how many people specifically made this move? Inspired by the song '但願人長久' ( In English, 'Hopefully what between us lasts as the stars twinkle eternally') by Lowell Lo, we may not achieve the same eternal nature as the stars, but we can still leave remarkable memories or something meaningful behind.
The photographs were taken on Kowloon and Wan Chai waterfront, while the airlines passed the harbour. Long exposure.
