Dorason told Hong Kong Free Press that he thinks public housing estates will disappear under urban renewal efforts. “I’m trying to capture its face and beauty as much as I can. To leave a picture for those who have never visited Oi Man, and for those who were born at a moment when Oi Man no longer exists on the map,” he said.

Dorason has also photographed some of the former ‘Occupy’ sites. He wanted “to present the everyday and ordinary face of occupied zone once umbrella movement ended and ask everyone questions: ‘Do you remember?’ and ‘Is it over?’ “
