“One day, working in my office, I discovered that the window in my bathroom was overlooking the Chai Wan firestation. The view had much more to offer than I had originally imagined.”
These humble words describe the beginning of a critically acclaimed (Hong Kong Photo Book Award 2015, Tokyo International Foto Award 2016) series shot by Hongkong-based photographer Chan Dick.
The small window in his office’s washroom became Chan Dick’s portal to the small world where the firemen lived their everyday lives: assemblies, washing up fire engines, pupils’ visits, volleyball games

“It so happened that the bathroom window of my workshop looked right over Chai Wan Fire Station, and offered a vantage point for an omniscient view of whatever was going on down there: assemblies, washing up fire engines, pupils’ visits, volleyball games. That tiny window opened up a brand new chapter of a curious journey.”
