Twelve students participated in a Digital Photography: Visual Diary workshop with Objectifs Centre for Photography & Film, where they explored the art of visual storytelling and developed their photo projects in December 2020.

Now they present their photo projects in an exhibition titled Annotations at Li Ka Shing Library. Their photographic narratives—that share stories on loneliness, resilience, connection with nature, the life of a migrant worker, and journey of self-discovery amongst others—are embedded across the Library on the 2nd and 3rd floor. Like notations in the margins, they reveal an exchange within and between themselves, the city, and campus life.

The exhibition features the photo projects of Andrea Vincent, Celeste Wong, Dhriti Trehan, Jerald Heng, Makarios Tang Way, Meutia Ananda, Prarthana Chandani, Shabbir Akhtar, Tan Huei Suen, Vishakha Choudhary, Xu Moyu, and Yap Ying Ying.
