和許多外籍人士一樣,來自菲律賓,27歲的Xyza Cruz Bacani十年前來到香港的原因亦是成為一名家傭,希望藉由在這努力賺錢,讓家中的人們過更好的生活。但在家傭的身分之外,Bacani其實還是一名街頭攝影師,四年前她用賺來的錢加上雇主的協助買下一台Nikon DSLR相機,在工作之餘,用她的鏡頭捕捉城市的浮光掠影。今年6月,她的作品榮獲《The New York Times》刊登報導,開啟了她生命中另一條可能的道路,最近她拍攝了一組生活在受害外籍家傭避難所的攝影集,也許是因為身份與同理心的關係,她的影像充滿故事性與真摯情感,更為她贏得Magnum基金會提供的人權獎學金前往紐約大學參與六週密集課程

Bacani接受CNN訪時告訴記者:「當我看見這些女孩時,我和她們說話、理解她們的情緒。我不敢相信竟然有人能對其他人做出如此殘忍的事。我和她們一樣都是外籍勞工,但我有個尊重我的雇主,這些女孩們卻遭受殘暴的對待。」
