”Stories of Aberdeen Fishing Folks” Exhibition
It is said that metropolitan Hong Kong grew out from a fishing village, but few of us know much about this episode of Hong Kong’s history. Aberdeen has a long history of fishing with its geographic feature as a typhoon shelter. We have recorded the oral histories of fishing folks in Aberdeen about their lifestyles and culture. In this exhibition, we share with you the lived experiences of the fishing folks in Aberdeen through the oral histories, old photos, comics and innovative visual design.
