- About Us 關於我們
There was a group of humans abusing in intoxicants. Being in an ecstatic madness that lost their enthusiasm to live, to exist, only to vastly indulging extravagant. I saw the resemblance of them with this – crash test dummies. Their existence was merely to be exposed in collision; they were mindless and soulless, counting the clock to be completely destroyed. During the process of documenting, I sensed a kind of hollowness in their eyes as if they were possessed by spirits. As an observer remaining in this revelry scene, I could not find any trace of humanity, nothing but faceless monsters, nothing but man-made dummies. Faces were pale as ghost, all that remained were the state of ecstatic delirium. Paradoxically, these violent and frigid impressions hit stronger when the facial features were erased, and the horror lingers.
About the author
Rusty Fox was born in Macau. He acquired both his Master’s degree in Documentary Photography in University of South Wales, Newport, UK, and Bachelor’s degree in Photography in University of East London. Rusty Fox’s works have always been concerned with the balance and imbalance within the city, his interest mainly focuses on the relation between living organism and inanimate objects. To him, documentary photography in itself has no limits of its presentation. His body of work allows viewers to aware the neglected connection of living beings and inorganic things, leading us to the hidden message underneath through his pursuit of extraordinary truth from ordinary. Therefore, allowing the images to speak for themselves.
這裡是一群喝到爛醉、吸食毒品，忘我而瘋狂的人們，他們沒有向死而生的積極，祗有紫醉金迷的揮霍，我，想到 - 碰撞測試人偶。 他們的存在意義在於碰撞，沒有思想，更沒有靈魂，祗是為了迎接自己被毀滅的一刻。 在拍攝過程中觀察到他們眼中的空洞，我唯一想到的是，他們彷彿是被幽靈附體的人偶。在那個狂歡的空間裡，作為旁觀者，我，完全感受不到屬於人類的氣息，他們祗是沒有五官的怪物，攝影師眼中的'碰撞測試人偶'。 白紙一般的面孔，剩下的祗有荒謬的狂喜。吊詭的是，五官被除去後，那些瘋狂而又冰冷的感覺，反而更加明顯，十分可怕。
Rusty Fox (黃霐雴)，澳門出生，於英國University of South Wales, Newport取得紀實攝影碩士及University of East London取得攝影學士。 時常留意都市中的平衡與失衡，特別對沒有生命的無機物和人類作為有機物之間的關係感興趣。認為紀實攝影在內容的呈現上沒有限制。其作品的重心是讓讀者看得見生命體和物件之間常被忽視的關係，在不尋常裡發現日常，從而獲得隱藏在內的訊息，透過影像不言自明。
