MEDIA ATTENTION

“For the past year, a team of volunteers for non-profit project, Dear Hong Kong, have been interviewing and photographing Hong Kong residents from around the world. The work in progress? A bilingual photobook — in Chinese and English — that will spotlight 150 people, each from a different country, who have moved to Hong Kong and made the city their home. ‘By documenting stories and humanity, we hope that the book can be a platform to give voice to the voiceless, break stereotypes and promote mutual understanding,’ project co-founders Oskar Valles and Aggie Lam said.” — Coconuts Hong Kong

當我們感到孤獨的時候,身邊的親友與朋友可能未必即時能夠抽身陪伴,又或者心裡有話卻未必能遇上合適的聆聽者,閱讀別人的故事可能是一個另類的被陪伴方法。《Dear Hong Kong 鄉港家書》是一份很有心的自資出版計劃,這裡記錄了80個來自不同地方,卻扎根在同一個香港的「異鄉人」的故事。八十個人,就有八十個故事,八十種人生信念,在同一個地方。— Stand News

Dear Hong Kong is an exploration and celebration of Hong Kong’s diverse population and all the wonderful people that make this city so interesting. It shows that being a Hong Konger is determined by far more than just what you look like or what your passport says, but rather by the love you have for this beautiful city and how it has accepted you.” — Lindsay Varty, author of Sunset Survivors

「We are Hongkongers.(我們都是香港人。)」西班牙裔的Oskar Valles,九年前因工作來港生活,對這城市多元化生活和市民善良個性深深吸引,決定留港定居,逐漸視香港為家,但因察覺部分港人對異族人士抱有成見,為加強公眾對非華裔居民的認識和理解,毅然組織「義務記者」團隊,訪尋一百五十名在港生活的「異鄉人」,記錄他們在港扎根、為港貢獻的故事,採訪內容即將出版成書,期望有助推動社會和諧共融。 — Sing Tao

Oskar, Aggie, Brad and Olivier from the Dear Hong Kong project were interviewed on Noreen Mir’s 1-2-3 Show on RTHK Radio 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLaca3tqRTw — and also on Viu TV: https://youtu.be/yOsd7XqF6Yo

About the authors

The collective of writers and photographers behind Dear Hong Kong aim to promote a message of diversity, unity and mutual understanding in this multicultural city. We are interviewing the most inspiring representatives of the countless nationalities who live here, people who have contributed to Hong Kong with the work they do or with whatever they bring from their own cultures. We hope that these interviews, stories and striking portraits showcase their shared passions to contribute to Hong Kong and show why Hong Kong is truly Asia’s World City.
