又冰涼又滋味的啤酒。
打開啤酒罐清脆的聲音像一個開關,打開了新的世界,之前的舊世界便關掉。
不急於拍照,我專注於眼前的風景,
珍惜地看著陽光盡最後努力在山坡和叢林塗上金黃色,
在每棵樹的皮上雕刻著深深的壑紋。

A can of refreshing and tasty beer.
The sound of cracking open the can of beer is like a switch that can open an entirely new world, and shut down the old world at the same time.
I have no urge to take a picture. All I want is to focus on the scenery I am seeing,
To genuinely admire how the last golden beam of the setting sun is shining on the slope and the bushes,
And to appreciate the magnified texture of tree bark.


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.’
