After more than a year of sustained protests calling for democracy in Hong Kong, Beijing has cracked down on the movement, implementing a new national security law banning any actions associated with the protests.

Award-winning photojournalist Laurel Chor describes the climate of uncertainty felt in the city since the new law has gone into effect.
