In 2019, the people of Hong Kong took to the streets in Anti-Extradition Treaty protests that soon spread around the world. The photojournalists that were, and still are, on the ground in Hong Kong captured some of the most poignant human moments of the protests, allowing the world a glimpse into the hearts and minds of those involved. 

Modern photojournalism has no business model. Most photojournalists do not get paid, they are self-funded. A lucky few get paid very little by photo agencies, or through the odd print sale.

RooT has built an exhibition that brings photojournalists together so that can continue to inform the public of issues that matter. Your contributions in support of independent journalism will allow photojournalists to continue covering the events in Hong Kong and in other conflict zones.
