In an era where antagonism and calmness could coexist, traffic lights are both a faithful navigator and a silent witness of a city’s history. From the beginning of 2019, the artist roved about different districts of Hong Kong, capturing streetside fragments that occurred within "3 seconds" when the yellow light was on. Like the function of the yellow lights, Hong Kong is also undergoing constant transition/tussle between GO (green) and STOP (red). This 30-image photo series adopts a parallel space-time installation which keeps an unofficial record of ‘ordinary/unusual/new ordinary’ stories, including significant and trivial moments that happened since 2019.

Jeremy Cheung is a Hongkong-born freelance photographer with a keen interest in exploring the relationships among humanity, urban environment and time. His personal works are often fusions of abstraction vs. reality, minimalism vs. complexity, as well as symmetry vs. imperfection. This is his second collaboration with HKIPF after 2018’s Satellite Exhibition “Philosophers on the Streets” – a photographic crossover between wordplay and cityscape. His other solo photo exhibitions include “Hong Kong Déjà Vu: when reality feels unreal” (2020) and “Life Between Urban Canyons” (2018). He is also an award-winner of “2017 National Geographic Wheelock Youth Photo Competition” (mobile category) with the photo “Light it Well”.
