請你今個星期六去北京《釋放》攝影展找我吧


《釋放》
(沈嘉豪個人攝影展)


香港是一個只有一千多平方公里的城市。一百多年來形成了它所獨有的文化及生活方式。受英國教育模式的影響,部分學校又形成了分校(學校分為男校及女校)的格局。隨着成長,對異性的窺視所带來的好奇又因为這种教育形式受到壓抑。快速發展的商業社會促成了人與人之間更深的隔閡 。

攝影藝術家沈嘉豪年青的時候正是生活在個環境中,在種種原因的積累下形成了内歛的个性,不敢面對女性,更莫說是注視女性。許多年之後雖然問題已經解決,他還是有興趣把它作為一藝術探索項目。從2006年他开始透過攝影,一項躲在照相機後的藝術行為,注視著現實中他從前所不敢面對的主體,並與之溝通。透過鏡頭,攝影師在看、或者說是視覺侵略這些女性的同時,也被這些女性同時注視著。在形形式式的香港女性肖像作品中,呈現了她們獨特的內在情緒。如藝術家本人所形容的:她們自信、有個人風格又充滿「港味」的。他戲劇性的把「港女」們置放在虛無的實景中,在高度注視的同時不失利用周邊事物對人物進行刻畫,烘托每個個體的特質。

經過鏡頭這個通道觸探心靈,搭建了人與人之間相互釋放的平台。在這種坦然的心態中他們彻底地釋放了自己。正是這種心態及行為的改變,將自己帶入了一個前所未思的新領地。

Set Free
(Bobby Shum solo photo exhibition)


Hong Kong is an international metropolis with around 1000 square kilometers. The hundred years of history contributed to it's unique local culture and life style. Under the influence of the British education system in the colonial period, there were many schools in where students were only boys or girls. Because of such special growing environment, youngsters' curiosity the opposite sex was encouraged, but was also suppressed in their peer groups. As a result, gap of communication between people became wider and wider under the rapid growth of economy.

The photography artist, Bobby Sham was one of the Hongkongers growing in such environment. He was passive in front of women that never gazes women, or even face them when he was young. Now although he has overcome his problem, he is interested to treat it as one of his creative themes. In 2006, he started to use photography to “set free” himself. He hid behind the large format camera, focused on the objects that he was shy to face in reality, and communicated with every “she”, who was also looking at the guy paying attention to them through the lens. Bobby’s works showed the “Kong ladies” (Hong Kong girls) innate nature, confident, unique and very local. Making use of the background of shooting place, Bobby successfully blown-up the unique character of each Kong lady and focused on them without shyness.

Lens is a bridge of communication between the photographer and the model, who are both encouraged to show off the personal core and transformed to another “me”.
