攝影的另類實踐 觀眾將攝影師作品進行拼貼、製成手工攝影書 


本地攝影書交流平台 @phoboko 嘗試摒棄影像的個體性,在黃竹坑Gallery In-between展覽現場,放有數十幅由八位本地及外籍攝影師在香港拍攝的黑白照片,包括植物、身體、城市等不同主題。每位觀眾可根據個人偏好或感受選擇不同的照片,然後在白色小誌整理或排列所挑選的影像,創作成獨一無二的手工攝影書,藉此打破觀者被動接受影像資訊的侷限。 

翻開觀眾創作的手工書,有的將照片進行切割再拼貼、有的將原本可能不相關的影像並置、有的結合文字及繪畫,每個人都對這些作品有不盡一致的創作與解讀。著名攝影師Ansel Adams曾說:你不只是用相機拍照,你把所有你看過的照片、讀過的書、聽過的音樂、愛過的人都帶到攝影中。其實,這對於觀看照片的人同樣如此,或許你也能從自己的手工攝影書中找到答案。 

Photography is usually considered a medium of individual expression. The photobook enthusiast platform Phoboko tries to break through the images' individuality. 

At the exhibition site in Wong Chuk Hang, there are dozens of black and white photos taken by eight local and foreign photographers in Hong Kong, including themes such as plants, bodies, and cities. Each viewer can choose different pictures according to their preferences or feelings and arrange the selected images in the white zine to create a unique handmade photo book, thereby breaking the limitation of the viewers passively accepting image information. 

Some participants cut and collaged photos, some juxtaposed images that might be irrelevant, and some combined words and paintings. Everyone has different creations and interpretations of a photographer's works. 

The famous photographer Ansel Adams once said: "You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved." This is true for image viewers and handmade photo book creators, and maybe you can find the answer in the exhibition.
