      製造耶穌光-濱田祐史《photograph》⁣

      大家都聽過,攝影的字根由光(photo)和繪畫(graph)組成。翻開日本攝影師濱田祐史(Yuji Hamada)的攝影集《photograph》,的確像本以光繪畫的美術畫冊。書中數十張照片,是城市不同角落出現的「耶穌光」景象,你開始會想,哪來這麼多「耶穌光」?⁣

      原來那是濱田於2005年至2006年期間的創作,他利用煙霧機,在多個日常生活場景造煙,再用長時間曝光的方法,讓照片沒有任何人的痕跡,剩下來的只有光線。換言之,光線是真的,煙霧不是,卻像一幅畫布般,將光線清晰地襯托呈現。⁣

      他說:「我常常思考這些沒人留意的光線,不管是地球上某處,或在外太空。看見光線,有時讓我平靜,有時讓我驚歎不己。正是這些瞬間,讓我想將日常生活看見的光線紀錄下來。」題目就是那麼簡單尋常,但誰說攝影一定要驚天動地呢?⁣

      要是你登上濱田的網站,又會看到一段令人會心微心的短片,他在參與瑞士Festival Images時,把自己作品《Primal Mountain》照片造成裝置,浮在日內瓦湖上面展出。仔細看又會發現,那些不是真的山巒,而是錫紙造成山的形象。看來他擅長將最簡單的題目,用創意的方法展現出來。⁣

      Pixy Liao/廖逸君 - Experimental Relationship Vol.1/實驗性關係 Vol.1 ⁣

      Are you dating yet? Is there anyone chasing you? Have you met any boys? How many times have you been asked those questions during your New Year celebrations? Growing up in Hong Kong, the only mindset that seems to be around is that you need a man to be happy. This man should be older, wiser, has a great job, and has the ability to take care of you for the rest of your life. It seems growing up in mainland China is not so different. Pixy Liao’s ‘Experimental Relationship’ should need no further introduction. Her work flips around the power dynamics of a heterosexual couple, whereby Liao directs Moro during their photo shoots, within their boundaries of course - such as no full frontal nudity. ⁣

      Lying naked in bed, with Moro on top but turned away from the camera, and Liao on the bottom with a direct gaze towards the camera, holding our attention; almost as if challenging us, daring us to comment, but her gaze holds such power, you don’t dare to speak up. And with Moro looking away, as if shying away from the camera… this scene challenges our preconceptions of what a heterosexual relationship should be. A man does not need to be in charge. They can be just as sensitive as women are ‘supposed’ to be. If there is a message we should takeaway from this piece, it’s this: Hong Kong, it’s 2019 for goodness sake! Liao’s work is a stark reminder for us to embrace the breaking down of gender roles, for us to not make assumptions of others, and to accept love in all its forms.⁣

      家書抵萬金-Ed Kashi《Photojournalisms》

      一般人對紀實攝影師,常有浪漫化想像:在戰火連天,槍林彈雨的環境,用鏡頭道出真相,拍攝人性化的畫面。從事報道攝影近40年、VII圖片社成員、著名攝影師Ed Kashi的攝影書《PhotoJournalisms》卻告訴你想太多了,攝影師所真實面對的另一面,並非想像中的浪漫。

      Ed曾到世界各地工作:敘利亞、伊拉克、尼日利亞、斯里蘭卡、尼加拉瓜,也有他的足跡,每次離家便是數月半載。攝影生涯令他缺席了兩個孩子的成長,與妻子的相處機會。「我花了大半生,在不同的酒店房間中獨自渡過。」他在接受《紐約時報》訪問中這樣說。

      從1992年開始,Ed Kashi帶上筆記本,紀錄每次旅途所見所聞,寫下當下的感受,在每次旅程後,把整本筆記送給太太。《Photojournalisms》結集了近20年,Ed寫給妻子Julie Winokur的筆記和書信,在20至30篇文字之中,附以該次旅程中拍攝的照片或contact sheet。

      他這樣說:「我想告訴人們--攝影師是會思考、敏感、投入生活的普通人。不是西部牛仔--或者至少,我不是尋找刺激的西部牛仔。我這樣做,因為我真切關注這些議題,我希望帶來改變。」

      例如在拍攝受橙劑影響的越南女孩後,Ed在筆記上寫道:「2010年7月9日,越南峴港。這個美好清晨,我拍攝小女孩Ly。她到醫院檢查,她的胸膛凹陷,將來需要進行手術,但她太過瘦弱了。醫生對Ly的媽媽說,她需要吃更多東西。他們說就容易。能夠見證Ly的勇氣和家人對她的愛護,是件美麗的事。她是個特別的小女孩,但願她能夠渡過難關。我希望自己能夠說出更重要的話,可惜我的腦袋空空如也。」

      Feng Li -White Night/馮立《白夜》⁣

      Over a decade of shooting in Chengdu, China, Feng has captured the most intimate yet bizarre moments on the streets. Yes, singularly, each photo is
      ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
      Feng's work seeks to excite, intrigue and amaze. And all of that, I have felt. If you follow him on Instagram and love his work there, then you must grab a copy of his book, 'White Night'. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
      ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
      Feng Li's work on Instagram is amazing. Feng Li's work in a book, just spectacular. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣prettymind blowing. What is most exciting however, is the pairing of photographs. In one spread, on the left, you have a woman going up the escalator, perhaps shocked by the flash Feng used, which has made her eyes go wide open. While the photo on the left shows a man with an enormous toothy grin. You may read into this however you like, but to me, this pairing creates the narrative of the most awkward encounter; it’s as if the man made an attempt at flirting, only to fail in the worse way possible. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
      ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
      In these pairings, Feng has created a fictional narrative of chance encounters. He has created his own beautiful reality, and 'White Night' is our invitation to join him.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
