LANDSCAPE
緣起山水

The rapid development of the city is like a speeding train headed for an unknown abyss. I have no control of its speed, nor do I know what sceneries it will pass through, but I can choose when to board and where to sit. That was my thinking when I did the Landscape series. Consistent with my style and attitude of living, I have chosen to set the shutter at low speed. The slow exposure and swaying camera rendered the scenery outside into a blurred, somewhat anachronistic but poetic imagery. I find this quite in step with Nature’s pace. It seems to go beyond the limits of time, and yet in control of the now, resisting the vertiginous and mechanical thing we call living.

城市的急速發展就像一列迅速飛弛的火車,正在駛向一個未知的深淵。我作為其中的一名乘客,跟其他人也無法控制列車的速度,也不知道會經過哪種風景,但我可以選擇乘搭的時間及座位的位置。《緣起山水》的拍攝方法,就是這個思考,選擇低速快門就像選擇我的生活方式和態度。以慢速和擺鏡拍攝車輛行駛中的窗外風景,營造了一種既朦朧又古老的詩意景觀。速度與大自然的契合,好像超脫了時間的限制,忘我地自我掌控的當下,為抵抗快速機械的一種精神境界。
