Life and Times – Photo Exhibition of People with Mental Illness

About exhibition (有關展覽 )

Heart touching work tells the life and times of people who suffer from mental illness; Singer Denise Ho and writer Wai Chan sincerely recommend.

“They act as a mirror for the rest of us “normal” people, reflecting the darkness that exists not only in society but also in every one of us. The trials and tribulations of their lives aren’t theirs alone to overcome. There’s a collective lesson in there for all of us.” By hocc (Denise Ho)





「眾人看他們,除了病,就似一無所有;久而久之,竟致看不見他們藏著的,一顆希罕的、赤誠的心。」– 陳慧
