Laurent Segretier Pays Homage to Hong Kong's Marginalized Groups with Technology

The Hong Kong Refugee Advice Centre in conjunction with the Sundaram Tagore Gallery commissioned preeminent Hong Kong-based French photographer Laurent Segretier to coordinate a one-night only exhibition featuring heartfelt, abstract portraits of Hong Kong dwelling exiles. Commemorating World Refugee Day on June 19, the current Hong Kong resident utilized his signature digital image distortion technique offering pixelized portraits that camouflaged the identity of one of the city’s most vulnerable and marginalised groups, whilst capturing the emotion and fragmentation of their lives. All proceeds from the event and auction went directly towards HKRAC’s legal services for the refugee families project.
