捨棄拍照的觀念,風景才會向你展現鉅世無遺的細節。
滿頭的枝椏無所不在,順著那些交織伸向天空的枝椏呼吸,恬靜而工整地,
會發現細節在空氣裡,在畫面以外,
在開始緊縮的溫度裡,在日短夜長的界線發出的輕微和音裡。

Putting photography theories aside, you will then gain the privilege to view every inch of the surroundings.
Look up and see the web of branches orderly reaches out for the sky, embrace the breath of the branches
And feel the details in the air. Outside of the frame,
In the tightened temperature, amidst the dainty echo emitted from the border of short day and long night.


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.’
