"Every holiday [day off], I always bring my camera. Even on weekdays [when] I cannot go out, or sick days stay when I stay at home, I take indoor photos," says Sinna, an Indonesian domestic worker in Hong Kong. Her photos will be exhibited. See SCMP reports

Risna Hermanto, now 30, was just out of high school when she moved to Hong Kong from her native Indonesia to become a domestic worker in 2004. 

A keen writer, Risna (nicknamed Sinna) started penning in diaries her experiences in the new city, then soon after discovered the joys of blogging. Inspired by those blogs, she started yearning to add visuals to complement her writings.

Lensational will hold an exhibition of the migrant workers' photographs from August 15-17 at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre, 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. For more information, visit lensational.org.
