「尖子」

重回母校,那個我熟悉的地方,在一群學弟學妹協助下創作「尖子」系列。通過鏡頭,觀看穿著校服的學弟學妹,我彷彿看到從前的自己,按下快門,所拍下的不單是影像,還有我對香港教育制度的感受與回憶。此系列的構圖以三角形、圓形和方形為主,三個各有不同含義的基本形狀,觸發我的靈感,引發無限聯想,呈現我對這樣一個教育制度的所感、所思。

這是一個由「自我的投射」到「群眾的參與」、由「操控」到「釋放」的過程。在拍攝之始,採用了「擺拍」方式,一種完全由攝影師操控拍攝對象的拍攝手法。最後的三張照片,我逐漸將規限減少,讓同學自由發揮,表達他們想傳遞的信息。

年輕人的無窮魄力,在拍攝過程中完全釋放出來,讓我再次感受到他們的那份熱情、活力和能量!


"Elite"

Returning to my alma mater, a place I was familiar with, I created the
"Elite" series with the help of current students. When I saw the students through the camera lens wearing their school uniform, I felt like going back to the old days. Every time I pressed the shutter, I not only captured an image but also my feelings and memories of the education system in Hong Kong.

Triangles, circles and rectangles are the main shapes used in the composition of this series. The three shapes represent the different preoccupations that inspired me to express my opinion and views on the education system.

The process evolved from “self-projection” to “group participation” and from “control” to “release”. In the beginning, I staged each photograph. As part of this approach and technique, the subject is fully controlled by the photographer. When it came to capturing the last three photos, I gradually reduced these restrictions and gave the students free rein to express the message that they wanted to deliver.

Throughout the process, I felt the immense power of the teenagers, as well as their passion, vitality and energy!
