Project 2 Places and spaces

What is the difference between a place and a space? Both have a physical connotation. In a conventional cultural reading Place seems to be an area with a specific existing use such as our home or a meeting point, whereas space often imply a new area without markings or history such as a blank canvass. 857 more words

on the arbitrariness of taking a picture

“There’s something arbitrary about taking a picture. So I can stand at the edge of a highway and take one step forward and it can be a natural landscape untouched by man and I can take one step back and include a guardrail and change the meaning of the picture radically… I can take a picture of a person at one moment and make them look contemplative and photograph them two seconds later and make them look frivolous.”

(二)From Martin Parr To Hong Kong Parr

「數碼年代下多了很多攝影師,同時也多了很多垃圾照片。攝影不是為了按下快門而出現,而是為了表達想法,傳達思考。」

Martin Parr是馬格蘭攝影通訊社(MAGNUM PHOTOS)攝影師,也是通訊社新任主席。他的攝影生涯始於1970年代,從英國本土出發,多年來在世界各地不同城市拍攝,食物、人像、消費文化等,Martin Parr將藝術與紀實共融於同一鏡頭之下。他沒有像通訊社的前輩們一樣走進戰爭場地或貧窮地方,而是在那些看似再普通不過的地方拍攝人們的生活百態,他的照片色彩鮮豔,往往帶有詼諧及諷刺意味,看似隨意又不乏趣味點。每個城市在他鏡頭下都是充滿幽默感的,所以當他將鏡頭瞄準香港,便有了廣東道的自由行、街市的豬肉佬、馬場的馬迷⋯⋯

小時候的Martin Parr在業餘攝影師爺爺的耳濡目染下對攝影產生興趣,1970年,他在MANCHESTER POLYTECHNIC學習攝影,並於不久後成為職業攝影師。那個年代彩色攝影雖已誕生,但攝影藝術創作依然是以黑白照片正宗,他也沒例外,像早期的作品集《Bad Weather》(1982年)便是以黑白菲林拍攝。1976年,美國攝影師William Eggleston在Museum of Modern Art的彩色攝影個展,開始改變業界對彩色攝影的偏見,與Stephen Shore等人一同掀起彩色攝影革命。遠在大西洋另一端的 35 more words
