The firm grasp of the roots alludes to the life-drive, witnessed, in this piece, by a minibus that serves to move people daily.

Part of Joni Gutierrez' "Home for Now" Exhibition held from 1 June to 3 July 2016 at the Hong Kong Baptist University Library:

Artist's Statement:

Wandering around Hong Kong has become my path in connecting with its lifeworld - something that I cannot satisfactorily express in words. The photographic medium, however, with its dual affinities for the concrete and the indeterminate, offers a way for me to invoke this elusive sphere. The ensuing panoramic mosaic in this exhibition manifests an ongoing attempt at a creative conversation with the Hong Kong lifeworld.
