A Moment Of Solitary

Year 2013, one week before Christmas, I only took few seconds to decide moving whole family back to Hong Kong from a place where I and my wife had lived almost 10 years, Stockholm, once we received my wife’s health report. Then next day, we had already arrived Hong Kong with two pieces of suitcases plus a tone of ignorantness but no regret.

Hong Kong, the city I was born and grew up. I really love it; however, I had had no alternative but to escape from it due to extreme high work pressure. It led me to have mental issue, high blood pressure, headache, stomachache, etc... When I decided to return Hong Kong, I had already foreseen I would face not only the same work pressure again but also new pressure caused by my wife's health status (particular the regular body checks every 6 months).

“Sigh! I haven’t died yet!” It is often the first thought while I wake up since I had returned to Hong Kong half year. I then realize my old friend - anxiety disorders- now attacks me again. To rescue myself, I take a direct and simple method: short break at a silent place, e.g. terrace, overpass bottom, quiet park, lane, etc., to exhaust the pressures being underneath the heart. This photo series is to record how Hong Kongese struggle with pressures at "A Moment Of Solitary", like me.
