2005年八月,十位在大台北地區工作/生活的移駐勞工(migrant
workers)加入了「台灣國際勞工協會」(TIWA)籌劃開辦的攝影工作坊。以人手一台的傻瓜相機為觸角,移工們透過觀景窗,以第一人稱的視角逐步發
掘存在於週遭卻經常被忽略的各種現象,並以簡短的文字敘述來表達他們對自己身份的看法與對不同文化現象的提問。當語言文化的隔閡造成本地人對「外來者」的
漠視或曲解,這個展覽希望能提供給觀者一個有別於主流媒體所呈現的,未經「我們」簡化或篩選過的第一手經驗。

In August 2005, 10 migrant workers who live and work in the Taipei area
participated in a photography workshop organized by the Taiwan
International Workers Association (TIWA). Using simple automatic
cameras to feel out their environment, the migrant workers give us
their first-person view of many phenomena which are all around us, but
which we often overlook. They also use brief captions to express their
views about their own position here and to raise questions about
different cultural practices. Language barriers often create
misunderstandings between locals and “foreigners.” We hope that this
exhibit will give the audience a view of migrant workers’ lives that is
different from the images in the mainstream media, a first-hand
experience that has not been pre-digested and simplified by “our”
cultural lenses.詳細資訊請見TIWA網站
