- About Us 關於我們
With assistance from the Society for Community Organization, since 2005 Dustin Shum has met more than a dozen people recovered from mental illness who are living on the edge of society. They not only have to face the sufferings of the illness, discrimination from members of the public but also the challenges of poor living conditions. Dustin’s observation led to the exhibition and publication of Live Alone A life in 2007. He has continued visiting these people to learn the changes of their lives and to has participated in a campaign that they strive to fight for their own right.
Concern on the importance of mental health has been raised in society that more people are affected by emotional and mental problems, the stigma of recovered mental illness patients remains however. Mutual understanding is the first step towards acceptance. Seven years after the previous work, Dustin’s Life and Times offered a glimpse of the hearts of recovered patients to reveal their unique personalities and read into their past and philosophies through their belongings and living conditions.
