Living Villages Series
Starting in 1999, the Living Villages Series was the brain-child of Kevin Sinclair who set out
to capture the historical and evolving village life in Hong Kong. The weekly SCMPost articles
in 1999, 2004, 2005 and 2006 and featured nominated villages. Together with Lui and O’Young,
each of the series culminated in an award ceremony to honour a winning village under the themes
of heritage and innovation. With over 707 registered villages in Hong Kong, the SCMP project,
run in partnership with Home Affairs, won the PATA grand award in 2006 and captured the imagination of thousands.
