To draw attention to the issue, the Society for Community Organization (SoCO) has commissioned a collection of photographs highlighting life in Hong Kong’s micro-apartments. Coined the Photo Exhibition on Grassroot Housing in Hong Kong 2014, the series ‘Trapped’ by Benny Lam will be on display from May 16th to July 13th in Sham Shui Po (1st Floor, 269 Yu Chau Street).
