HKFP Lens: Photographer documents Hong Kong’s Covid-19 quarantine hotel with a picture a day

By Mariusz Bogacki

Freelance documentary photographer Mariusz Bogacki has created a visual diary of his “mundane” life during a two-week Covid-19 quarantine in a 19-metre square hotel room last month. From binge watching films by Wong Kar-wai to practising yoga, the Hong Kong visitor shares – in his own words – how he endured isolation, and his hope for a return to a pre-pandemic, “normal” life.

When the Hong Kong government announced in early August that non-residents would be allowed to come to Hong Kong again, I quickly booked my flights and a quarantine hotel. A day before my departure the government changed the rules and I was informed I would have to quarantine for 14 days (with no option of shortening it).
