2020 Sony World Photography Awards在2月12日宣佈我的作品「Wounds of Hong Kong」入圍紀實攝影組的Finalist。但是由2月14日起,這輯作品在主辦單位World Photography Organisation(WPO)的網頁被下架。同一組別的入選作品、David Butow的「Battleground HongKong」和肖像組Adam Ferguson的「Hong Kong Protestors」同樣被消失。

作品被暫時下架的原因,我正在向WPO了解。對方的初步答覆是「A concern was raised about the sensitive nature of some of the images in the series which we must take into consideration. We have temporarily taken down the images as part of a standard process which we have put in place for these type of cases until we are able to review everything in further detail.」但「入圍名單未有因此而改變」云云。正式賽果將於4月17日宣佈。

「Wounds of HongKong」的構想很簡單,就是要記錄警暴,令更多人得知這大半年來香港人的遭遇。既然WPO暫時未能刊載這些與香港抗爭運動有關的作品,我在此公諸同好,以廣流傳。

若有進一步資料,我會在此Update。

“Hong Kong Protests”

Hong Kong has been shaken by antigovernment protests since June 2019. The protest movement began in June with more than a million people marching against a bill that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China.
