时立方
作品中的人物都是来自生活中的普通女性,四年前我曾为她们拍摄过个人写真照片,当中有拍摄过一次或两次就再也没有相互联系的,也有每一年都会再次和我约拍的。这些为她们记录了美好年华的的个人写真照片一直留存在我的电脑硬盘里。每每再次浏览这些照片的时候总会有强烈的想要知道她们现在的境况如何的欲望,这也促使我想要对她们的近况进一步的了解以及想要拍摄区别于她们拍摄个人写真摄影时的“作”的精神状态的照片。同时也对自己过去赖以生存的商业写真照片进行一种回望与提问。
想要获知她们当下相对真实的状态,拍摄时就必须触碰她们所谓的“敏感问题”和“底线”。然而这也使我感觉到自己乃至被摄者时过境迁后,身心、身份、所处境况的改变,所有记忆里的深刻点,模糊点,疑问,好奇,都再一次的浮现。
我试图用分割的方式把一张完好的图像分解,我在暗房里洗印这些图像碎片,如同时光之手对人生的洗礼。而后,我用刺绣和涂画的方式改变了照片上的一些细节,这让我觉得我创造和保留下来了这段记忆的时光标本。最后,残缺的碎片重新解码后似乎变得全新。
如今暴露在光影之下的动作、情绪、表情,与几年前给她们拍摄的唯美、轻佻、故作的图像相碰撞,这些女性现在身心的坚定、勇敢、执着催化出了另一种稳定的美。文字和老照片的形式出现,亦是表达她们当下内心深处最向往的某个境态。
时间一层层的把记忆剥削,丢弃,跌入深渊,又再一次次的拾回,已经面目全非,模糊不堪,但这种模糊恰恰又是美好过往的见证,而这种过往也不再是电脑硬盘里虚拟的图像,已经在我心里变的立体。

Cube of Time
The figures in my works are ordinary females from our ordinary life. In the last four years I took portrait photos for them. Some of them never got back to me after that, and others kept in touch with me every year to take new photos. I keep all the photos in my hard disk every time I look upon them, I have a strong desire to know the current situation of these ladies, and how their states of mind are different from the time when they had the impulse to take those portrait photos. This thinking and questioning is also a reflection on the works that I did for a living.

It is important for a photographer to know the real state of your model, and sometimes becomes necessary to ask them some sensitive questions, or even “touch the bottom line”. And after this, all the questions, queries, curiosities about their identities and conditions will emerge from time to time.

What I am trying to do is to split complete photos by cutting. When I washed these photos in the dark room, it feels like when life is washed by time. After this, I fixed some details on the photos by embroidery, making them into specimens of the memories I created and kept. The scattered pieces are renewed after deciphering.

The gestures, emotions and expressions exposed under the light, crashing their affectation shown in the images taken years ago, delivers a mature beauty brewed from their strong body and mind.
