1.11

光線不斷收斂,樹蔭變得非常濃密。
人隻身在曠野無可把持,內心的恐懼開始掩沒視野,
讓人以為陌生的風景隱含某種不安的意味。
山不發一言,聽得到只是我自己發出的聲音。
山對所有的事情沉默不語。

Light gets dimmer, shade of trees becomes denser.
Being in the outback, the fear arising from desolation starts to blind one’s sensibility;
I falsely believe unfamiliar surroundings are somewhat a source of agitation.
The mountain remains silent, I can only hear sounds uttered from my throat.
The mountain never really talks about anything.


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.’
