It is an eye-opening experience to live, to learn, and to see a culture with its own traditions and lifestyle. The idea to shoot this book came to me while I was looking out of my window in Brooklyn. I was imagining the other side of the world and it dawned on me that I was ready to travel. What is different in this approach is that someone or some event led me here. Nothing was ever planned by me. Photographed while in a moving vehicle, and at waist-level, this is my visual diary and these are the images that came my way.I am grateful to be returning to ArcLight to showcase my favourites from this body of work. A very special thanks to Gordon Cheung, Zetter Picture Framer, and Paul at Digital Force in Hong Kong. This is my journey in seeing the beauty within.One love,Monique Lai
