有一帶山坡長滿雜草,路徑無法判斷。
待在霧裡超過一小時,方向感已不能再發揮作用。
僥幸爬到山頂,僅到處一樣的白霧而已。
迎著風啃了三塊麵包,喝了兩杯茶,加了一件保暖衣物,撒了一泡尿。
惡夢才剛剛開始。

The path in some areas is completely overgrown with weed.
Staying in the mist for more than an hour, I have completely lost my sense of direction.
I have my luck to finally reach the mountaintop, but it’s a complete mist all the same.
Standing against the wind, I eat three pieces of bread and drink two cups of tea. I put on another layer of clothes to keep myself warm and then I pee.
The nightmare begins now.


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.’
