statement |

I was wondering how the government got the protested crowd figures, and why this figure has such a big difference compare to the newspaper. I came up with an assumption that the government must have used pinhole photographs as the protest evidence. On 1st July 2010, I tried to pretend myself as the government official photographer, pushing the trolley along, asking people to join my shoot. The result is a protest with merely 20 participants.

================================================================

究竟,政府的遊行人數統計數字和民間的差距從哪裡來?

如果相片就是證據及依歸,我相信政府用作統計的一定是針孔相機拍出來的照片。

所以,七一當日,我嘗試代入官方攝影師身份 (及目擊者),推著這台裝上針孔相機的車,尋找自願上車的遊行人士,一起原地踏步,拍下只有二十人的遊行。

*由於暫時未獲全部被攝者的批准,固拍攝出來的相片暫不能公開,僅能發表遊行過程。
