不可見者The Invisible


這個項目是關于無家可歸者在倫敦的故事。這個國家有30多萬流浪者,其中一半在倫敦。我花了3個多月的時間記錄了30多名流浪漢的生活。我和他們坐在一起,了解他們,聆聽他們的生活。我們一起吃飯,一起分享好心人贈予的咖啡,偶爾一起睡在街上。這是一個關于流浪者的項目,但它更多是關于倫敦這個城市,以及被其社會所吞噬拋棄的局外人。?流浪者在倫敦司空見慣。但這絕不應該成為選擇性忽視這個問題的借口。當下的情況尤其如此。這個城市充滿了危險與不可預知性。脫歐損害了這個城市年輕人的利益,公共資金的削減也使邊緣化人群的生活更加艱難。在這個項目里,我期望傾聽他們自己的故事,渴望了解他們的處境。我希望這個項目能多少增進人們對于邊緣化人群的理解,但我個人不認為影像本身具有改善現狀的能力。

當我的項目進行到一半時,我意識到我將永遠無法得出任何指向性結論。如果你好奇一個人無家可歸的緣由,以及他將怎樣做才能改善目前的處境,遺憾的是我不能提供滿意的答案。因為他們像你,我一樣是復雜的人:無家可歸者都曾是社會的一部分。是女兒,是父親;是郵遞員,是工程師。他們的背景曾與我們的生活有著無數共同之處。
從另一個角度觀察,這些人或許也是成功逃離現代社會牢籠的人。他們是這個城市的難民,也是真正理解何為自由的人,像極了喬治·奧威爾筆下所描述的底層靈魂。盡管為了獲得這樣的自由,代價有時會是深淵。

?The Invisible

This project, named The Invisible, is about London homeless people. There are more than 300,000 homeless people in this country and half of them live in London. I spent more than 3 months and met with more than 30 homeless people for this project. I sat on the street with each of them for hours and hours to interview them and document their life. I ate with them and sometimes slept outside with them. This is certainly a project about homelessness, but it became more about the city of London and its abandoned people.?Homeless is commonplace in London, however, this should not be an excuse for choosing to ignore the issue. This is especially the case currently, with the city being full of unpredictability. Brexit is detrimental to the young people who live in this city and the cutting of public funds also makes the lives of these marginalised people harder. For this project, the aim is to hear their voice, to document their lives and let them speak about their story. I wish that this project could change their current life situation, however, I personally doubt that photography could change their lives.

In addition, as I got deeper into the project, I realised that I would not be able to conclude the reasons behind a person being homeless or how these people could better their current situation. They are complicated human beings just like you and me. I discovered that the lives of the homeless have so much in common with our lives.?Looked at in another light, these people are also the ones who have successfully escaped from the cage of modern society. They are the refugees of this city, as well as the ones who truly have their freedom, even though the cost of this freedom is sometimes enormous.?


Artist Introduction
I am a student currently pursuing my master’s degree in visual anthropology at Goldsmiths University. Graduated from BA(Hons) in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication (UAL).

Having majored in photography for both my foundation and Bachler degrees (2014-2018) and also worked as a freelance photographer, holding a photography exhibition together with the London Sinfonietta.

For me, doing photography is not only about photography itself, but also my curiosity about what role photography plays as a medium in our society. I wish to discover the photographer’s social identity as a professionally trained observer and an anthropologist. I started doing photography since the second year of high school and after that keep learning photography as my major, observing this world using both my cameras and my own eyes.
