Hong Kong court hears maid residency case

My colleague and friend Philippe Lopez, who is AFP’s photographer for Hong Kong, asked me to shoot some pics to illustrate a story about a court case challenging Hong Kong’s immigration laws, which particularly affect foreign domestic helpers, who do not currently gain the right of abode after having been based in Hong Kong for the usual requirement of seven years for non domestic helper expatriate workers.

A couple of papers and websites picked up the story, but we both got published in the article below, which for me is a bit of an honour  You can also check out some of Philippe’s work at his AFP Portfolio and at his personal website www.lighteracy.com.
