Found at Good Lab series (001): The Other Hundred

Did you ever notice some of the objects at Good Lab? A book? A flower? A lamp? A coffee mug? or what about the chair that you are sitting on?

In fact, many of these objects at Good Lab have their unique stories. They are there for you to discover. and we are happy to reveal their stories to you with this blog series called “Found at Good Lab”. Check back each weekday for updates!

Found in a bookshelf at Good Lab, The Other Hundred is a book of photography work curated by Chandran Nair. It is a beautiful book with photos of everyday people taken in different parts of the world.

The blurb in this book captures the spirit of this project quite nicely:

Selected from 11,000 images shot in 158 countries and submitted by nearly 1,500 photographers, The Other Hundred celebrates those who will never find themselves on the world’s rich lists or celebrity websites.

Its 100 photo-stories move beyond the stereotypes and cliches that fill so much of the world’s media to explore the lives of people whose aspirations and achievements are at least as noteworthy as any number of the world’s richest 1,000.

大家新年好!我們從今天起將爲大家帶來「發現Good Lab」系列,帶大家去瞭解Good Lab的不同角落裏所隱藏的故事。

Good Lab的每個角落都有一些非常值得被發掘的故事。我們從這個星期開始,將帶大家透過一個個的物件,去瞭解這裏的點滴與瑣碎。

歡迎關注我們的 發現 Good Lab 系列故事 🙂

上面這張圖是在Good Lab的書架上找到的一本書的封面,講述的是一百個來自世界各地的普通人的生命故事。他們不是什麼名人顯要,但正如書的夾頁裏所寫:

這是從來自世界的近1500位攝影師於158個國家所拍攝的超過11000張照片當中精選出來的一個照片集,組成了《另外的一百》這部攝影集。這裏所記錄的都是那些你永遠都不會在時尚網站或者富人列表那裏的平凡人的故事。

這裏所呈現的故事超越了平日裏媒體對這些人的生活的刻板描述,我們選擇去記錄這些普通人的願望以及努力,因爲我們認爲,他們的努力跟富人的努力一樣,同樣值得稱頌。

假如你想瞭解更多,不妨到這個項目的官方網站去看看,或許可以得到一些不一樣的啓發。
