    I know her works, o can't read Chinese, but she did an essay on Filipino maid living in HK and the way the abuse that they receive... Why is it relevant? Because she is a Filipino maid living in HK! ...

    Bye with that essay she got the Magnum scholarship, and now she is doing another project in NY if I'm not mistaken

    Again I can't read Chinese sorry if all of this was already written in the article

    Welcome done Xyza Cruz Bacani!

    I really like this paragraph which says it all:

    "在她看来,以菲佣身份生活在香港这座大城市里,是毫无自由和平等可言的。但摄影不一样,按下快门的声音都 一样,拍照的人们说着同一种语言,这个时候,她和那些本土人,是平等的。"

    I believe that the title does not really sensationalize as much as much of western media does.
    What she does to provide a living for her family did nothing to undermine her love and talent for capturing another view of the world she finds herself in is, by itself, encouragement for everyone who reads this.
    Many I know get caught up in what they do for a living and lose sight of their passion and hobby.
