努力地記住景物的模樣只是徒勞,
視線一離開原本的事物,下一眼的影像似乎曾經出現。
相同的野草、相同的有刺植物、相同的乾花、相同的石頭,
前一瞬和下一瞬,過去與未來,只是重覆的時間。

My effort in memorizing the scenery goes in vain.
Moving my glance, and everything looks almost identical to what I have just seen.
The same overgrown weed, the same spiky plants, the same dried flowers, and the same pieces of stone.
The previous moment, the next moment; the past and the future. Things repeat like a loop.


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.’
