CALL FOR ENTRY 你們的故事募集拍攝計劃
20 August - 20 September 2021
There are three stages in life: Seeing yourself, Seeing all living beings, Seeing heaven and earth.*
There are also three stages of love: Loving yourself, Loving your partner, Loving all living beings.
Memes & Friends have been trying in various ways to explore what self love means to people here in Hong Kong. This summer, we have invited local photographer, Eunice Li, to partner with us in our quest to redefine what love means.
“We cannot see everything about ourselves without the eyes of others. But when we are in love, everything about us, good or bad, are laid bare - our desires, needs, fantasies and standards. Being in love is like looking into a mirror.” - Su Hei
Every relationship is like a mirror. Can you see your deepest self when you are looking at that reflection?
*From the film The Grandmaster, Gong Er had a famous line, “My father would always say, people who practice martial arts go through three stages: seeing yourself, seeing the world, seeing all living beings. I have seen myself. I think I’ve seen the world, but it’s a shame I can’t see all living beings. My journey is incomplete. I hope you will complete it for me.” This was purposely rewritten to reflect how Ip Man would later spread his Wing-Chun style all over the world.
由即日起直到 2021年 9月20日，我們將公開收集你與另一半的故事，並揀選其中10對愛侶，由Eunice操刀分別進行10次戶外寫真拍攝，根據二人的故事進行創作，紀錄每段關係的原始狀態，並於網站及社交媒體刊登。
Beginning today through to 20th September 2021, we are seeking submissions from you about your story with your partner. Ten submissions will be selected to take part in one-on-one outdoor portrait sessions with Eunice. Our aim is to capture ten unique stories in photo format about each couple. The series will feature on our digital platforms.
