LUNAR NEW YEAR IN SHEUNG SHUI

Hong Kong, 2018

Sheung Shui is a city in Hong Kong where Chinese grey good businesses are all located. Over the past few years, 95% of the local stores have been replaced with these grey good stores since it's very close to the Chinese border in Lo Wu. The streets normally are packed with grey good buyers from China and only few local residents could be seen.  During Chinese New Year this year as all the grey good shops are closed, I took a walk there to experience what Sheung Shui residents call "Liberate/Recover Sheung Shui (光復上水)".
