Having the ideas of inviting some neighbors in surrounding area where we live to be photographed was an inspiring experience. Our curiosity may not equal to acceptance. Until we started sharing some common or different living habit, we found a point of human touch and exchange. As an image based artist and photographer, I haven’t imagined that taking photos and getting consent by the “Refugee” from the war area such as Syrian and Afghanistan is a meaningful task for me. They are willing to be taken photos. It seems like that “The new comers in Germany need my photos showing their existence.” Finally, I got their consent to show their faces in the family photos standing and living around us. How about your “Consent”? In my project, I set a photo series and 15 family photos from the Refugee Camp in Hamburg, and installation of getting the “Consent Form (of acceptance)” to be filled by the public.

邀請鄰居成為拍攝對像是一個難忘的歷程。因我深知自已的一時熱情及好奇不等同接納。直到我們用有限的共同語言分享大家的「同」與「異」,我們終於感受到一刻人性的接觸及交流。對一個攝影創作人來說,我未曾想像過取得從敘利亞及阿富汗來的「難民」的信任許可拍照是一個這樣有意思的事。他們願意被拍攝就好像是「新來臨德國的人需要我的照片表明他們的存在」一般。我終於得到了他們的認同而展示他們的臉,他們的家庭的確成為了我們的鄰居,你們又是否願意「認同」他們呢? 
在這展覽項目中,我展示了一批共15張住在漢堡難民營家庭的照片,以及一批特別設計的「認同/接納」表給參觀者填寫。
