Seeing clearly is the title of Leeh Ann’s shortlisted photograph.
‘Abuses, social stigmas and injustices are everywhere despite the fact that every human being has human rights that we should be enjoying.. perhaps, to see things closely and clearly is needed? not only by the human rights officials but every one in society.. time to act now to stop human rights abuses! time to start seeing things clearly!’
On the side of being a photographer, Leeh Ann is a domestic worker in Hong Kong. Through photography she hopes to raise awareness of migrant workers’ conditions, including the inability to get a permanent resident visa, or to apply for another job, even after years of residing in Hong Kong.
We’re so proud of Leeh Ann’s journey! You can discover and purchase her photograph to support her work on our online gallery
