In an era where antagonism and calmness could coexist, traffic lights are both a faithful navigator and silent witness of a city’s history. In the course of 2019, the image creator walked through different areas of Hong Kong, capturing streetside fragments that occurred within the ‘3 seconds’ when the yellow light was on. Just as the function of the yellow lights, Hong Kong as a city is also undergoing a constant transition/tussle between GO (green) and STOP (red). This photo series serves as a side record of ordinary stories and significant moments that happened during the crucial year of 2019.
