iSpeak: What’s Important to YOU?
Meet Meng Hai Lin. She’s a 29-year-old mobile phone engineer from Beijing, China. She has learned some English and is skeptical of marriage. Meng’s voice is but a small murmur from an unprecedented global generation — one witnessing a dramatic restructuring of traditional relationships between countries, cultures, and people.
Photographer Adrian Fisk wants to show the world what Meng and the rest of her peers want to get off of their collective chest. Thus, iSpeak was born.
Traveling around China and India, Fisk gave random people 16- to 30-years-old a marker and piece of blank paper. Then he told them to write whatever they wanted. The iSpeak photographs are the result, and they channel the hopes, dreams, quibbles, and fears of a new generation.
