notes before the wind is a loose collection of views of Hong Kong taken in a five-year period, beginning with the Umbrella movement in 2014 and ending right before the summer of 2019 when large-scale social unrest and violent resistance erupted. The everyday scenes captured the ambience and landscape of change in the city, standing as a quiet prelude to the ensuing conflicts and beyond.
