There are usually no windows in these cubicle flat, except for in the rooms at either end of the aisle. Bathrooms and toilets are shared among the units. Cramped, stuffy and full of maddening bedbugs, it is difficult to spend lives in these crushed space.
— Excerpt Preface, Chun Wai

In his latest feature photography project, Chun Wai - the author behind Under Heaven 'puts flesh' on the everyday lives of Hong Kong's disenfranchised. In the process of documenting cubicle-dwellers' lives, Chun challenges mainstream ideology and the doctrine of elitism. Unlike the subtle poetic style of Chun's previous works, Cubicle Life presents readers with a highly cohesive collection with dynamic colour for a hard-hitting translation of life and existence.

Hong Kong-born Chun Wai received his artistic education in sculpture at Le Quai-École supérieure d'art de Mulhouse in France, and went on to work as a sculptor and teacher while developing his technique as a photographer. Central to his photographic style is his belief in portraying the essence of reality. Grounded in realism and rich in social connotation, Chun's images have an uncompromising quality, with the artist painstakingly waiting for his subjects to naturally respond to his camera in their own time and space. Over the years, he has documented the beauty and compassion of life in photos that have the power to transcend social and geographic boundaries and expose a sublime universal human truth.
