做了一個夢。
我站在舞台上,刺眼的聚光燈打在我身上,光外幾乎甚麼都看不見。
看不見有道具、背景,看不見有其他演員,也沒有觀眾。
不管往哪裡走,總是沒有盡頭。
我開始感到厭倦,努力地想記起劇本的內容。

I have a dream.
Standing on a stage, my eyes are almost blinded by the dazzling spotlight on me.
I don’t see any props, sets or other actors. I cannot see any audience.
Every direction I go leads to an endless path.
I begin to be annoyed by this; I try hard to remember the script.


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.’
