牆一天一天地高,愈來愈少掙脫的餘地。
我像一隻胡裡胡塗闖進人家房間的蝴蝶,在玻璃窗前跌跌撞撞,找不到出口。
拍照與其說是一個目的,更多是一個藉口而己。
手握相機,便可以對自己說「到外面拍拍照吧」,好說服自己離開。

The wall grows taller and taller everyday, leaving less space for my struggle.
I am like a butterfly that accidently entered a stranger’s home, stumbling near the window without finding an exit.
Taking pictures is more of an excuse than an intention.
When I hold my camera, I can give myself a good reason to go out for the sake of shooting.


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.’
