初段是綿延石階。
濕氣相當濃重,濡濕的植物發出過於新鮮近乎腐爛的味道。
雨在空氣撲面而來,呼吸變得困難。
水點覆蓋在所有東西上,倒是讓平常隱匿的蜘蛛網清晰可見。
晶瑩的水珠在網上閃閃發光,看起來像一個美麗的水晶切割面。
無數個這樣的蜘蛛網遍及了整個山頭。

A continuous train of stone steps appears first in the trail.
The high humidity makes the soaked plants overly fresh and give out an almost rotten odour.
The air is filled up with raindrops; breathing becomes difficult.
Every single thing is covered by raindrops; the usually concealed cobweb suddenly becomes visible.
The translucent water drop shines on the cobweb like a beautiful piece of dissected crystal.
The mountain has countless cobwebs like this one.


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.’
