Strangers at Home / 外傭—住在家中的陌生人
Winner of the RTHK Hong Kong Book Prize 2016, Publishing Concept Prize at 27th Hong Kong Publishing Awards 2015, and the Hong Kong Biennial Publishing Awards 2017, Strangers at Home / 外傭—住在家中的陌生人, explores the lives of migrant domestic workers employed in Hong Kong and the impact that this migration has had on their families back home. The book features a series of personal stories and photo essays, as well as interviews with employers and experts.
The book, written by independent journalist Mei Chi So (蘇美智) with photographs from Rights Exposure's Director of Campaigns and Communications, Robert Godden, was sponsored by Amnesty International Hong Kong. A series of events were organised around the publication of the book, including exhibitions and talks, with the aim of creating a space for public dialogue on the issues facing employers and migrant domestic workers.
