#UmbrellaRevolution…

…As a measure of support to the people of Hong Kong I have today decided to re-work an old image originally produced as an editorial piece for CURRENTS Magazine.

The world’s press has been camped there recently reporting on clashes between pro-democracy protesters and police.  The umbrellas have inadvertently become the symbol of the demonstrations not just as protection from the rain and mid-day heat but also as a protective shield against tear gas.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets to peacefully protest against the Chinese government’s plans to vet the electoral candidates in the 2017 elections – see more here.
