Sometimes I just think about we should let the people present themselves. Now everyone can be an independent media. You can publish whatever you want on the internet if you’re not against the law. However, maybe we should turn microphone to people and let them talk about their story. Not the journalist’s version or third party because we should not deprive other people who have right to speak.

The picture I took secretly at Otto Braun Street in Berlin. I wonder what kind of life they have. They are four people. Here is their home. There are sleeping bags and basket of supermarket. They put a table that is surrounded by bears on the road. Also, it is a plate on the table that hopes you donate. They stay home by turns. Sometimes I saw them getting many bottles to change money. I often saw them sitting and talking.

Recently I always think how to not judge other people. For example, homeless, why do we say they are dirty, blahblah. Why don’t we realize the reason the life they choose? The other example, poor people are low-level. Rich people are high-level. Why don’t we respect homosexual? When and where did we learn how to judge? It exists too much judgement and makes us mean and nasty. Maybe it’s not an equal world. There are so many things we should do if we’re eager to equity. About respect, we should work hard.

The issue of Want Want China Times Group don’t finish in 2012. The media of Taiwan are caught in scandals of second generation of rich people. Is it a conspiracy that government wants to cover the regulation they wanted to pass?

這張照片攝於我家附近的大街上,拍的時候我還不敢正面拍,我一直在想他們身上有著什麼樣的故事,他們大概有四個人,他們的家就在這裡,他們的家當都在這裡,有睡袋,有超市偷來的車籃,他們放了一個桌子,附近擺了許多玩偶,另外也有希望你捐助的盤子,他們會輪流留守住家,偶爾會看到他們推著酒瓶去超市換錢,經常可以看到他們坐在那裡聊天。

我一直在思考要如何才不會一直去評斷一個人,譬如流浪漢,為什麼要說他們都不洗澡,很髒,而不是了解他們為什麼選擇這樣的方式。譬如窮人,為什麼有人會覺得這些人是低階或低下的,為什麼有錢人比較高級,為什麼同性戀不受到尊重,為什麼我們看人需要有這麼多外在的評價,在我的生長過程中,我到底什麼時候開始會評價一個人?

旺中還沒結束,台灣媒體竟然又陷入小開淫魔案中,我怎麼覺得這是一件陰謀,政府試圖想要掩蓋最近默默通過的幾件法案。
