下午五點鐘,距離天黑約有九十分鐘。
「這麼晚還到郊外去嗎?」
「嗯。很快走走便回去。」我答道。
我沒有背包,也沒穿戶外服裝,他因此而好奇吧。
其實我正在上班。
聽到他的問題,我加緊按住外套的口袋,不敢讓這位司機知道裡面藏有一罐五百毫升的啤酒。

5 in the afternoon, 90 minutes before dusk.
“Going to the countryside at this late hour?”
“Yes, just for a quick walk.” I reply.
I don’t have a backpack, nor I’m in any outdoor clothing. That gets him suspicious.
I am in fact working.
Having heard his question, I press the pocket of my jacket even more firmly, worrying the driver might find out the 500 ml can of beer that I’m hiding.


他有種說故事的本領,用影像帶你跟隨他的步調,以緩慢的節奏觀看生活中的不經意。鄧浩倫,香港攝影師,先後發表過攝影集《Maybe a sentence or something》(2013)、《Stairs》(2014)、《聽靜》(2016)。喜在不尋常的視角看待尋常景物,相比起充滿城市緊張感、呈現香港繁喧印象的攝影,他的作品是個異數。題材單一平淡,風格安靜內斂,但他認為「真正單調的,是我們看待生命的態度」。

He is a talented narrator; in an unhurried pace, you are led by visual images to watch the trivial matters of life.  Published photobooks by the Hong Kong photography Ho Lun Tang include Maybe a sentence or something in 2013, Stairs in 2014 and Listen quietly in 2016. While most of the photography works tend to depict Hong Kong as a bustling and tense city, Tang is definitely a peculiar photographer who gazes at the usual objects from an unusual angle. He uses a modest attitude to document monotonous subjects in his photography, for he believes ‘what is truly monotonous is our approach to life.’
