According to the Society for Community Organization, over 100,000 people in Hong Kong live in tiny ‘cubicle apartments’ in the city- 40-square-foot living spaces created by dividing already-small apartments into multiple units. This is despite the city being ranked as top of the world’s most livable cities by The Economist.
In an attempt to draw attention to the issue, the human rights organisation has recently commissioned a series of photographs showing a number of such living spaces viewed from directly overhead. The wide-angle photographs capture how cramped these spaces really are by showing everything within them in a single frame. In each photo there’s a QR code directing viewers to a petition to the Hong Kong government.
