離開這麼困難,是因為執意尋找與記憶相符的風景。
我忽然有所覺悟,決定放棄猜測自己的位置,
憑藉直覺,看成是重新出發,
觀察路徑被踐踏的程度,順應山的走勢而下。

Leaving is so difficult, for my insistence to look for landscapes that match my memory.
Suddenly, I come to understand that I should give up guessing my location.
I restart my journey based on my instinct.
There I walk downhill by seeking the most well beaten path.


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.’
