黃色的、紅色的、棕色的、紫色的,
地上枯乾的葉子,繼續被風慢慢侵蝕,
從邊沿開始一點一點地粉碎。
已經脫落的葉子散發著一股快要將生命交還的苦澀味道,粗糙而溫暖。
為什麼氣味會持續這麼久呢?我這麼想著。

Yellow, red, brown, purple…
Dried leaves on the ground continue to be slowly eroded by wind,
Starting from the edge, bit by bit, they turn into dust.
The fallen leaves give out a bitter scent of the moment to hand back one’s life; a rough but warm scent.
Why does the scent linger? I wonder.


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.’
