About
United Social Press (USP) is a local non-profit news media founded in 2013. Initiated during the protest against the implementation of national education, a group of photographers and editors who shared the same visions and values came together as one to report on social movements in the city. Since then, USP has expanded its scope to cover both local and overseas incidents of significance.

Empowered by their images and written words, USP aims to record the truth of our times.

Overview



The anti-extradition law amendment bill movement in Hong Kong has escalated dramatically since June 2019, leaving significant impacts on the city’s everyday environment, scarring the memories of the city. The usual lives of ordinary people became more than unusual. With people adapting to daily resistance and confrontation; chaos and demolition integrated itself into a new order of society. Every captured moment reflects the standoff between violence and peace in the streets. However, the incompatibles beat all odds to coexist in harmony.
