‘Why Not Here?’ The question refers to the subject of the series- the fact that same-sex couples are denied the right to marry in Hong Kong. Laura's work makes the statement that marriage equality is a human right and there is no reason it should be denied to the LGBT+ community. Featuring portraits of same-sex couples and families of those married abroad but not recognised locally, these photos are sure to have us all asking, “Why not here?”.
