Them,nearby

Them,nearby

這是一個,或直接或間接,有意無意之間建立友誼的攝影計畫。攝影師梁仕池(Daren)藉此展開探索我城的旅程。如新的友誼一樣,此計畫正正建基於人與人之間的信任。他不僅走訪少數族裔社群的生活與工作空間,而且因此了解到,原來他們一直就在我們附近。不過,當中所遇到的限制和隔膜都不是可以完成克服的。然而,當走近他們,我們便會發現「他們」就在「我們」當中。

 

This photography project was borne out of budding friendship, real and sometimes vicarious, that the photographer, Daren Leung, has been able to make through a journey of urban discovery. Like all new friendships, the basis was trust, opened up not only through venturing into spaces where the ethnic minority communities live and work, but also by realizing that after all, they are nearby. Neither, however, can completely conquer prevailing conditions and divisions. Yet, by approaching the alewady-there, we can illuminate’’them’’amidst’’us.’’
