城市的眼睛2010年12月31日 eye e city 31 December 2010


19:23 Lorong 1 Toa Payoh 大巴窑一巷

I passed by this HDB flat at ground floor when I strolling with my wife and there was always no one at home. The corridor outside the unit often filled with paper boxes, cans, plastic bottles, and other old items.

Sometimes, there are dark stains on the ground. I presume this is the accumulation of stains which spraying out while flattening the cans.

The corridor considered clean at the day of shooting this photo. However, whenever I thought of the life of this household compared with the general households in Singapore, I was lost in reverie.

和太太在家附近散步时,经过这个位于一楼,经常没有人在的组屋单位。单位前常常摆满了纸皮箱、汽水罐、塑胶瓶子,还有其他旧物。有时候,地上还有黑黑的污迹,估计是在踏扁汽水罐的时候,剩余汽水喷出来,累积堆积出来的污迹。

这天经过拍摄时,已经算是整理清理过的。但是,这户人家相对于一般新加坡人的生活,还是会引起我很多的遐想。

My photos selected by organiser of eye e city 2010 was censored by exhibition partner, Singapore Discovery Centre (SDC), during the exhibition. Is the photos political incorrect ???

I always feel proud of these people who still choose to work hard and earn a living. This is an alternative view Singapore and Singaporean could have besides thinking they are poor and pitiful ones.

Luckily, it was still in the photo book published by eye e city. Hope the book will not censored and removed from NLB library. :)

这两张被2010年城市的眼睛主办者遴选的照片,在展览时被展览伙伴新加坡知新馆(SDC)剔除。这两张照片出了什么问题?是政治不正确吗?天晓得?

我常常为这些选择努力工作生活的人感到骄傲。与其觉得这些人可怜,值得同情,新加坡和新加坡人可以对这样的生活方式,有另外一种领悟。

还好城市的眼睛出版的2010年摄影集包含这两张照片,希望国家图书馆不会冷藏这本摄影集。 :)

  1. 两张照片陈述的都是这城市没那么“美观”的一面,
    因为花园城市是不能收破烂跟电脑出错的。:P

  2. 我反而觉得这显示城市"人文"的美。

    前者表示城市还有不怕肮脏辛苦、不靠福利制度、自食其力的人;后者显示城市依然是由人类管理,而还没有被猩猩统治。:p

  5. 其实无论多么发达的国家,必定会有一些人跟不上经济的步伐或者选择过不一样的生活.我觉得与其像有关当局把他们当作不存在,我们不如尊重他们的生活或者选择.

  6. “当然这个(双语文)政策没有所谓的对错,只是想说执行时能不能对华校生更包容。”
