I like you for being you!
The beginning stages of butterflies in your stomach. Feeling giddy for no reason at all. Smiling. Glowing with delight at the beginning of an affair. But is this love? Will this love continue to grow in the good times and the bad … And how bad can it get?
Where we are now and where we will be 5 years from now is anyone’s guess, but life in itself is about taking chances, making choices, and relishing all the good in between.
When life happens and it will get tough, the choice to stay or to leave is what we ask. The question: has time brought you both together or has life torn you apart.
Where do you go from here is the underlying subtext of this work. Will an illness break you both apart or will the bonds of time force you to stay?

“We value great photographers for their rare ability to see the same everyday scenes and objects we all do. And yet, through their vision, skills and a little magic, transform them into something very different, moving, and eternal— fine art. We are privileged in this auction to present the works of accomplished, unique photographers who have risen to the challenge of interpreting and defining life’s large and small ideas, objects and events through the magic of their lenses, and have done so impressively.” – BNO Auction
“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” — Ansel Adams

All images in the Déjà Vu series were shot in the quaint neighborhood of Kowloon City. The works capture a distinct timelessness and nostalgia of the old classic Hong Kong.

Filmmaker Monique Lai 賴 昱 蓉 creates a visual feast of the most traditional and yet bold culture of life in Hong Kong. Showcasing a fine eye for detail, the Déjà Vu Collection features images that highlight design and thought as simple gestures; and they are appreciated as a matter of fact.
Photographed in Kowloon City the images are both black and white, and in colour. Titles have a Cantonese pronunciation and are a nod to the native language of the city. Exhibition takes place at MUSE, Hotel Stage, located at 1 Chi Wo Street, Kowloon, in Hong Kong.
In one of the works, Lai depicts an abundance of cherries for sale where the eyes seemingly move from the cherries towards the recycled cardboard sign in ‘Chay Lay Gi’. Lai says, “as this may be an oversight to many, this handwriting-style is large and distinct. I love the fact this vendor took great care to label all her fruit signs with cardboard. Viewing a group of labels together sends a strong message as any that the smallest of acts recycling can make a difference.”
