I Am Matthew Rodier, photographer and journalist who spent 103 days covering the Hong Kong protests. AMA!
Hello Reddit! This is Matthew Rodier, an independent photographer and journalist based in Washington D.C. I spent 103 days covering the Hong Kong protests last year, photographing as many events as possible.
Currently, I have been covering the George Floyd and anti-police brutality protests in Washington D.C. You can find my work on [Twitter.]( https://twitter.com/mattrodierphot1)
I recently released an electronic photobook featuring 144 exclusive photos from the 103 days I was in Hong Kong. I want the eBook to be as accessible to everyone as possible so the world can see the unfiltered events of the protests. You can purchase the eBook through Apple https://books.apple.com/us/book/id1516539106 or [Kindle] https://www.amazon.com/When-Go-Dreaming-Matthew-Rodier-ebook/dp/B089CGMR5X for only $9.99. You can see more of my work on my website https://www.matthewrodierphotography.com
Hong Kong is projected to dramatically change under the proposed National Security Law from the National People's Congress of China and the United States is currently undergoing the largest social uprising in the past sixty years. On that note, AMA! I will be answering questions as long as questions are being asked.
edit: I'd just like to point out that there is no apple book store in HK, so if you would like to buy the book there head to the amazon link.
Edit 2: I'm logging off because I need to sleep now but I'll be back on tomorrow to answer questions at some point as long as they are not blatant propaganda or attempts to impugn my character or accuse me of bias without regard to the truth.
