brownie publishing

“brownie publishing” is an independent publisher, which works for promoting Hong Kong art of photography and Photobook, so that the public may come to know more outstanding local photographers. Ever since the popularization of cameras and prevalence of social networks, photography has become part of Hong Kong people’s life. Photography as artistic creation, however, seems somewhat remote. We aim at exploring more creative possibilities of ourselves, our environment, and humanities through the medium of photography.   

 

「brownie publishing」為獨立出版社,致力推動香港攝影藝術與影集文化,並期望能讓大眾認識更多優秀的本地攝影師。自從攝影器材的普及與社交網絡的流行,攝影早已是香港人生活的一部分,然而若說到用攝影進行藝術創作,卻又好像變得有點點遙遠了。我們希望與大眾一起深入並從不同角度認識攝影,讓每個人都能輕鬆透過攝影媒介對自身、存在環境以及人文生活進行探討,發掘創作上更多的可能性。2015年6月,與Rac合辦「100香港人自攝像」相片徵集活動、展覽及出版同名攝影集。

Dialect 方言社

The "Dialect", formerly known as "PhotoIntel Macau", is a photographic group and platform which based in Macau. Co-founded by four independent photographers in 2016, "Dialect" is dedicated to exploring the infinite possibilities of photography and giving new impact in photography to Macau through various forms of exhibitions, discussions and activities.

 

攝影無疑具有語言的待性/特質,但往往曖昧而不明,這又與一般語言結構有所不同。羅蘭巴特曾以俳句這種曖昧的日本文體來比喻攝影,而在我們看來,攝影可算是語言的一種變體,因此,方言社之名對應的我們對攝影作為一種非標準化語言的理解。當影像作為視覺上的方言來呈現時,我們深信影像的內容和意義不會再受書面文字所限而變得單一化,以視覺出發來了解影像本身,正是我們方言社的宗旨。方言社希望為澳門帶來一個全新的攝影平台,除了在網站上分享攝影學術的資訊包括攝影師和攝影集的介紹外,我們亦會定期舉行不同題材的攝影座談會,引進來自本地和世界各地的攝影師在澳門舉辦不同類型的小型展覽,希望在攝影文化上為這個題材單一化的小城提供更多的選擇。

Adrian Bradshaw (UK)

Cambridge-born Bradshaw first arrived in China on an aging Norwegian ferry from Hong Kong to Shanghai in 1984. He enrolled at the Beijing Languages Institute for a year as part of his course in Chinese from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. There he found himself in the midst of a society characterised by its youthful population and a rapidly growing enthusiasm for change and experimentation. Documenting what he saw with his cameras he would go on to spend the next three decades covering the era for international media. Everything he witnessed was recorded - from the first fashion shows to the first bankruptcy; the visits of Muhammad Ali and Bernardo Bertolucci; the transition from muddy rural free markets to vast shopping malls and e-commerce. Throughout his lengthy engagement with China what has most fascinated Bradshaw is the optimism and energy of people hungry for change. This was in the ascendant in the mid-1980s, an era that is fondly remembered by those who witnessed it. With an archive of almost two million images he is now producing a series of books and exhibitions in collaboration with leading a leading designer, Professor Phil Cleaver, to share his testimony with an international audience.

Hang Tam  譚昌恆  (HK)
He believes photography is the only way for him to feel his own existence. It fills up the emptiness in time and soul of his life. He rediscovers and reinvents himself, one picture at a time. It is, perhaps, the reason why he keeps taking pictures. Back in 2002, a robbery happened when Hang worked as a escort. His neck was cut and the right carotid artery was bleeding heavily. Fortunately, he escaped from the hand of death, but the anxiety remains in his subconscious mind and his pictures. He deeply believes photography is not about prettifying an object. Neither does it clones the reality as it is. 

 

他認為只有通過拍攝,才能感到「自己」這個角色的存在,填補了人生中心靈及時間上的某種空虛,這也是他一直拍攝的理由,令他透過攝影一遍又一遍重新認識自己。 2002年,從事解款員的工作期間遇到劫案,右頸的大動脈被割開。雖然幸運地從死神手中逃了出來但潛意識裡某種不能言喻的不安也反映在他的作品內。攝影對他來說,不是美化一件事的藝術,因為在按下快門時,事物早已存在。

Standsfield To  杜釓𣽊 (HK)

Standsfield To, Hong Kong based life moment photographer, fell in love with photography all because of his wife. His knowledge in photography is self-taught without formal training. The visual and thinking of two Japanese photographers Tomatsu Shomei and Ihei Kimura affected him the most. Standsfield walks with his compact film camera to capture different slice of life. His belief is to directly capture and present that split of a second life moment. Without specific topic to work on, all he does is to watch stealthily all the time in creating his work.

 

杜釓𣽊 (Standsfield To) 主修室內設計及建築學,並沒有接受正統的攝影訓練,但因為太太的關係接觸攝影及愛上攝影。他所有的攝影知識及風格都是自學而成的。而且熱愛日本攝影風格,其中東松照明及木材伊兵衞的影像及理念對其影響最深。杜釓𣽊喜愛使用隨身的傻瓜菲林機捕捉一衆人間風景,愛其直接捕捉及表達那一瞬即逝的生命片段,抱持從一個生命片段觀看另一個生命片段的表達,只有靜靜的窺視這個理念去捕捉,但同時認為透過攝影可以讓自己及別人更了解自己。至於攝影是不是藝術卻從來沒有想過,只因太喜歡攝影才全心全意去做,期望如煙火燦爛般燃燒至灰飛煙滅。
