Self-built settlements Stefan Canham took the lavish, carefully constructed photographs that you find in this book with his large format camera. The photographs here are powerful and show the erased homes and lives of people whose plight must have been very similar to the others documented in this book.,, The visual and oral research by Wu and Canham is anchored by an essay, “Rooftop Housing in Hong Kong: An Introduction,” by Dr. Ernest Chui. The essay lays out some of the historic and economic reasons for the existence of the rooftop settlements: various waves of legal and illegal immigration, tolerance for inadequate housing rather than spending money on public housing, critical shortage of land, and more.
