Except for a brief period after he was wounded by a water cannon, photojournalist Chan Long-hei has rarely missed a protest since they began in mid-2019 in Hong Kong. From the start, he has embraced one simple goal: get one more shot, get one more image of the truth. In the second half of 2019, he faced a different protest schedule each day – even the protestors who consider themselves the movement’s “fearless” have not been able to guarantee they will be at every protest. Yet journalists are capable of great persistence and of hitting the streets daily. Apart from this being a professional necessity, what drives them forward to an even greater extent is something that cannot be expressed in words, something “unspeakable.”
