We’re excited to announce a new partnership with Hong Kong-based media platform MAEKAN. Rallying around the motto of “Stories for the Curious,” their insightful storytelling and audio-centric approach have been a much-needed breath of fresh air in a digital landscape overpopulated with listicles and rehashed content.
Together, we’ll be creating a series of stories that celebrate culture and creativity in all shapes and forms.
For the debut of our collaboration, photographer Cheuk-Yin To shares a story about how he ended up in a special reunion at his ancestral village on a recent trip to China.
As the modern world continues to race toward the future, we can find ourselves constantly groping for radical or material ways to find our identities in it. But while we might be obsessed with going forward and discovering the new, we sometimes forget to look back and to the old — to our own pasts.
Cheuk-Yin To is a photographer MAEKAN has worked with in the past. One summer evening, he dropped by the MAEKAN office where he shared a special story of how he took a side trip on a whim only to find both his roots and a few long-lost relatives.
Cheuk-Yin To 是曾与 MAEKAN 合作过的摄影师。在某个夏夜，他们就在 Yin 的办公室里听他讲述了一个特别的故事——那是在一次无意的旅行中，Yin 竟意外发现了自己失散已久的远亲和血脉的故事。
