寧靜致遠 Michael Kenna

Michael Kenna的照片有傳統山水畫的意境,也有一種安靜的力量。喧囂擾攘的香港,正需要這種寧靜的洗滌。

宗教、簡潔、安靜是解讀Michael Kenna的幾個關鍵詞。自少他便渴望成為天主教神父,十歲開始在神學院度過七年時光,那裡有條不紊的生活及日復一日的祈禱、冥想習慣或多或少影響了他看待事物的心態。直到現在,他仍然喜歡參觀教堂、神社和廟宇,在家中燒香、點蠟燭,這種慢節奏、從容的心態,也貫徹在他的攝影創作過程中。

他的照片多以慢快門曝光完成,創作一張照片需時數分鐘甚至幾小時,我們或許會想到上網來打發時間,他卻寧願看著天空光線和雲朵的變化、水的流動甚至容許思緒四處遊走,滿足於安靜、觀察與等候。 在宗教傾向的影響下,Michael Kenna以一種敬重、欣賞的心態去接近每一處風景,嘗試去捕捉景色不能預知的一面。

他喜歡畫面中那種不可預測性,眼前的星星流水浮雲,所有的移動軌跡都被記錄在菲林裡,他並不急於知道影像的結果。事實上他仍樂於在傳統黑房裡沖洗照片,感受顯影那刻的驚喜。他坦言自己對複製眼前的事物沒有興趣,這也是他選擇以慢快門拍攝的一個原因。 長時間的曝光軟柔化了影像,令其變成另一個世界。這與同樣用慢快門拍攝風景的ANSEL ADAMS可謂截然不同,Michael Kenna不追求細節與寬容度,反而注重畫面的平靜和詩意。

大嶼山與大澳

多年來他一直以這樣的手法來過濾現實,以移動的雲和流動的水為背景,像滅聲器一樣過濾了畫面的喧囂、噪音。有時他會以俳句來形容自己的攝影風格,言簡意賅而又充滿想像力,在他眼中,攝影也是如此,不用記錄下所有事情,反倒是利用霧、雨、雪等元素,作為觀眾想像力的催化劑。
