They did all these things in attempts to know more about its living environment and the stories behind. This new book, published as part of Through Our Eyes (TOE) Photography Education Programme, is an artistic exploration on the intrinsic quality and possibility of life through the use of photography, creative writing and oral history.

Setting out to examine and provide an understanding of the connections between people, and between individuals and the society, the project takes off from a place where continuing observation, exploration, discussion and artistic creation are undertaken in attempts to know more about its living environment and the stories behind. This book is published as a final vehicle for the artistic work - integrating research findings with photos collected from various sources and presenting as an art object, and has become an important reference for the TOE Programme on how to expand and transform the narrative characteristic of the medium (photography) into a work of art interweaving images and text and generate interactions between people in the creative process.
