Every Person on the street has his or her own story.

Some were private tutors before, some had led dance troupes, some were "The Big Issue" vendors in the streets, and some had played different roles in temple fairs...

Yet as time moves on and society changes, personal predicaments have driven them to become street roamers.

In every large city, the homeless are a group of people who are often ignored by your average city dweller. Many people in the city would simply pass by and seldom spend time to talk to them and understand their world. Although they appear in various corners of the city, they are often ignored and treated as invisible by the general public. No one cares about where the homeless individual comes from, or where their destinations are in their walk of life.

After two years of preparation. In May 2019, SoCO has partnered with Homeless Taiwan Association to present “Homeless – Life Stories in Hong Kong and Taiwan” Exhibition to allow the public to take a detailed look at their stories through these fading images.

After the grand exhibition, their stories keep circulating via small exhibitions hosted in venues with characters.

【疫情中的 港台無家者】

速食店過夜 / 林璟瑋攝 突如其來的疫情,讓許多人的生活亂了步調,平時愜意的貴陽街,最近顯得更冷清了。 上週單獨約了導覽員及真人圖書館講師出來聊聊,一方面確認大家都有足夠的防疫用品,一方面也再次提醒大家芒草心的應變措施。 在聊天的過程得知,以販售大誌雜誌為生的銷售員,生意下滑不少,#飛機先生 甚至減少出門銷售的時...

貴陽街上美好的相遇

上周四結束了攝影展小開幕活動,和大家的相遇的緣分是我們一直很珍惜的,這次的攝影展重展,我們自己是以相當慎重的心情看待,也特別舉辦一個小開幕想和大家聊聊從展覽結束後的這半年多來照片中主角和大家生活中的規劃。因為現場空間有限,除了原定邀請的親朋好友及志工夥伴們,對外只公開了15個免費參加的名額,希望讓對這個議題有興趣...

無家者港台生活誌前進台南!!

據說這是一篇應該在跨年的時候生出來的分享文,但是遲到總比沒有好,在台南開幕的一個禮拜後終於要和大家分享這次 #無家者港台生活誌 前進台南的經驗惹! 從 #午營咖啡 開幕的講座系列開始,午營的聽眾讓我有個很特殊回到家的感受 - 大家距離我好近,一雙雙熱切的眼睛盯著你閃閃發光,讓站在台上的講者有種從心底暖了起來重新被...

帶大家逛逛雲端攝影展 無家者港台生活誌

要讓攝影作品重新展出,並不是件容易的事情。 就空間來說,主展場艋舺入船廳 貴陽街228,並不像剝皮寮的空間那麼大,算一算頂多只能放15張作品;就宣傳來說,這裡也非觀光客會駐足的地方,得花更多力氣來宣傳這個展、來說我們想說的故事;更不用說因為有些作品實在太「接近」我們了,甚至我們擔心某個主角的房間照片,會被房東認出...

遍地開花的無家者港台生活誌

今年五月,花了兩年籌備的 #無家者港台生活誌 攝影展在香港和台灣展出,邀請大家透過攝影師的鏡頭,走近這些和我們一樣在人生中掙扎的甘苦人,生命中平凡與不平凡的故事。 看見,是摘下標籤的開始,但我們想要讓大家看見的不僅於此。兩地有各自的難題,錯綜複雜的結構讓人跌落後就難以爬起,於是我們決定在台灣展期時辦了場 #雙城故...

無家者港台生活誌—雙城故事

|無家者港台生活誌—雙城故事| 無家者,描述一種居住的狀態。 無家者的身份以外,他/她們還是有很多面向,在香港,有人曾經是油麻地鄧麗君,至今仍熱愛唱歌;有人是老闆一直喜愛的水吧員工;有人則在小島默默地為當地居民服務;有人現在是足球教練,透過足球改變自己及其他人的生命。 在台灣,有人曾經是電影放映師;有人是木工師傅...
