In August 2021, Hold Everything, Dear,the first photographic collection of Axel Ling, was published. It covers his feelings during the past few years. The feeling of facing the future after graduating from secondary school; the feeling of leaving home to study abroad; the feeling of experiencing the political instability of Hong Kong... He was fragile...

Hold Everything, Dear resembles a personal diary,a personal diary that can be shared and resonate with everyone as the "punctums" inside connect people to each other. That being said, it is, to an extent, a collective diary.

在生命的進程中,凌文滔曾確切地抱著名為「留住一切,親愛的」的覺悟。時值社會及自身環境經歷巨大轉變,作者以比較私密的攝影回應及記錄轉變成大人這個過程,也是一個有關告別香 港及21歲前的自己的故事。本書是探攝離留之間的生命札記。《留住一切,親愛的》攝影風格強烈,是私密之餘且回應 時代的作品。
