Solitary workshop

Mr. Mok works and lives alone in this solitary wooden shack on the outskirts of Mui Wo village, Lantau Island. He is married with children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren but rarely sees them. His wife lives in a public housing flat in Tung Chung but he only goes back to be with his wife when he is unable to sell tofu dessert due to inclement weather.

 

This image is part of a photo documentary project I am working on in collaboration with the Hong Kong Family Welfare Society who provides social welfare services to the public. They will publish a book about senior citizens in Hong Kong who have interesting life stories to raise much needed funds.
