2.7

誰要去擁有山的一樹一木?誰要去傷害山的一花一草?
鷹在空中漫無目的地飛,「目的」這個詞語沒有在鷹的心裡,數字的遊戲也不在。
如今煙雨迷濛,動物都躲起來,我不清楚。
霧裡甚麼都沒有,霧裡甚麼都有。

Who needs to own trees in the mountains? Who wants to harm flowers and shrubs in the mountains?
An eagle is flying aimlessly in the sky. The eagle has never heard of the word ‘intention’, and number means nothing to it.
Heavy rain is pouring from the sky, the animals may have taken shelter. I am not certain about it.
There is nothing in the mist, but everything is in the mist.


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.’
