毋庸置疑,攝影已經成為當下社會人們最重要的書寫方式之一。擁有相機、會拍照,仿佛是一件與生俱來的事情。

 

也正因為如此,拍攝成了最為重要的民主方式。人人都能參與,人人都會拍攝,很多人的日常生活都是以攝影的方式進行。記錄、表達、甚至通訊與交流,攝影在日常生活中扮演起越來越重要的作用。

 

世界是個巨大的藝術倉庫,如果細看,似乎一切都可以紀錄,人類活動的一切痕跡都值得留下。在這里展現的,是21位攝影師的作品,他們以相機為媒介,對周圍世界進行視覺勘探。他們正在以不同的方式,重新審視自己身邊的人或事,重新認識并理解這些內容并使之成為拍攝對象。

 

在全球化的大環境下,一方面,舊的傳統和景觀正在慢慢消失,新的文化和建筑正在出現。攝影師開始關注這種變化并以此作為紀錄或創作內容;另一方面,攝影師開始發現身邊容易被人忽略的事物,賦予了它們新的內涵,以此來表達自己對世界的理解。無論是記錄新事物還是對舊事物重新進行發現,都成了這些攝影師們的職責所在。

 

攝影成了我們觀看世界的重要方式。因為這些審視已經不同于一般的觀看,我們稱之為《新視線》。

 

 

攝影師陸煥東、余敏山、汪雪涯開始關注當代社會呈現出來的新建筑,他們冷靜陳列,以類型學的方式進行拍攝。無論是小區大門、公共衛生間還是各種新出現的歐式建筑,都能折射出當下社會人們的喜好和夢想。攝影在這里扮演了博物館考古的作用,為未來研究當代社會的公共建筑文化提供了視覺檔案。

 

攝影師李紅、張仁明,以攝影的方式介入私人家庭生活。他們深入私人生活空間,一方面展現普通百姓的生活景觀,另一方面展現中國家庭的精神信仰和生活夢想。在這里,普通百姓的生存現狀、文化、空間、信仰、欲望、時尚、矛盾和沖突等信息都得以展現。

 

攝影師吳力、李鈞,把鏡頭對準了當下的新景觀。人們對自然強行改造后留下新景觀,能讓我們去解讀當代社會快速發展、新舊交替過程中所展現出來的矛盾與沖突,也在提醒我們思考人類自身的行為是否得當。

 

攝影師高艷通過論述和日常生活有關的瑣事兒并對這些物件進行拍攝和解碼,努力去發現隱藏在里面的種種親密,以此探尋上一代人的生活史和精神空間。李蓉、殷鳴鏑則分別以日常生活中的餐飲和服飾為創作對象,開始對日常生活進行審視和發掘,使觀者進行閱讀并產生想象。毛巧媛和李尊先則在一些生活場景進行重新發現,以女性主義視角去理解和詮釋老百姓的生活藝術和生活美學。她們把相機當成了凝視、觀察、記錄和理解外部世界的途徑和工具,拍下了當代人們日常生活中留下來的痕跡和生活景觀。

 

在全球化的趨勢下,一部分攝影師開始關注身邊人的變化。因為擔心時光流逝,這些攝影師試圖拍下一些人群的肖像,為未來人們留下視覺檔案。燕蒼娜、史發翠、王家璜、趙立群、崔建玲,紛紛重新返回到自己當年生活的場地或人群,以影像為媒介,再次審視這些看似平凡實則不易的人們,開展一次大發現之旅。拍下這些影像,既表達對特定人群的同情,也有質疑和反思。張倫、許小英、辛剛、徐建東等人則以影像調查的方式,為老人、喜歡COSPLAY的年輕人、狗販等幾類人群建立生活檔案,展示出他們對部分人群命運的關注和社會責任感。

 

攝影是捕捉客觀世界的重要方式,也是攝影師作為個體的一種表達。對攝影師而言,其重要職責就是試圖去看見一切事物,去發現并揭露這些被隱蔽的現實。每幅照片都是世界的一個片段,這些新視線,既向我們展現世界、揭露問題,又向我們表達觀點、引發思考。

 

這是對人類當下發展的記錄與展現,更是攝影師對人類命運的審視與發問。

Undoubtedly, photography has become one of the most important way of communication for people in the contemporary society. Everyone can use it.

 

Indeed, photography became a significant democracy, as everyone could take part, and anyone could take pictures, many people’s life involves photography. It plays a dominant part in our daily life, such as for recording, expressions and even communication.

 

The world is a huge art warehouse. Zooming in, it seems like everything could be used as a record, and all traces of human activities are worth preserving. Here we present 20 photographer’s works, they use camera as a medium to visually explore the world.  In a unique way, they are re-examining their surroundings, relearning and re-understanding them, which is the focus of their photographs.

 

In the atmosphere of globalisation, old traditions are gradually disappearing and new cultures and constructions are appearing. Photographers are starting to focus on these changes and records and uses them as inspiration. They are also discovering the things that are often overlooked and gift them with a new significance to express their understandings of the world. Whether it is recording new things or uncovering old things, these all became the duty of photographers.

 

Photographers became an important function for viewing the world. We call this the ‘New Observation’.

 

Photographers Huandong Lu, Minshan Yu and Xueya Wang started to focus on the new architectures in our contemporary society and using typology to exhibit them. Whether it is the front gates of residential communities, public toilets, or the newly appearing European- styled architectures; they can all reflect people’s hobbies and dreams in the contemporary society. Photography plays a key role in archaeology, and provides visual documents for researching this society’s public architectural culture in the future.

 

Photographers Hong Li and Renming Zhang used photography to get involved in people’s private family life. They dive into private life spaces to present the living conditions of the ordinary people, and also the belief and dreams of Chinese families. They reveal the conditions for survival, culture, space, belief, desire, fashion, and conflicts of ordinary people.

 

Photographers Li Wu and Jun Li aimed their cameras at the contemporary landscape. Nature are forcefully changed into new landscapes by humans. This allows us to interpret the rapid development of our contemporary society, the conflicts caused by these changes, and also reminds to think about the human behaviour.

 

Through describing and photographing the trivial things in daily life and decoding them, the photographer Yan Gao attempts to discover the hidden intimacy and explore the history of life and the spiritual space of the previous generation.

 

 Rong Li and Mingzhei Yin focuses on clothes, food and drinks. By examining their daily life, it encourages the viewers to read and use their imaginations.

 

Qiaoyuan Mao and Zun Li rediscover their surroundings. From a feminist perspective, they attempt to understand and demonstrate ordinary people’s art and aesthetics in life. They use cameras to gaze, observe, record and interpret the outside world and documents the traces and daily life of people in the contemporary society.

 

Under the current of globalisation, some photographers started to pay attention to the changes of people around them. Due to a concern of time passing by, these photographers attempted to shoot some people’s portrait to leave some visual archives for the future generations.

 

Cangna Yan, Facui Shi, Jiahuang Wang, Liqun Zhao, Jianling Cui all returned to their hometowns and used photography as a medium to inspect these people who seems to be ordinary but are undergoing many hardships. By taking these images, it expresses not only the sympathy towards certain collectives, but also promotes confrontation and a rethink of the human behaviour. Lun Zhang, Xiaoying Xu, Gang Xin, Jiandong Xu and others uses photography in a form of investigation to create archives for the lives of the elderly, the teenagers that likes cosplay, dog sellers and others. Also indicating their social responsibility and awareness of some group of people’s fates.

 

Photography is important in capturing a critical perception of the world, and is also an expression for the photographer as an individual. For a photographer, the most essential duty is to try to observe everything, to discover and reveal the realities that are hidden beneath. Every photograph is a fragment of the world. These new observations illustrate the world and the expose problems within it. In addition, they also convey different viewpoints and evokes rumination.

 

This is an exhibit and record of human development in the present, it is also the photographer’s inquiry and inspection of the human fate.
