Pinhole Photography Exhibition by Cora Si WunCheng

以心相見

施援程已經從事攝影事業多年。據我所暸解,她一直以來,都是使用專業的攝影器材進行創作。同時她也愛用手動菲林相機,菲林的粗糙微粒總是很迷人,甚至以最原始攝影原理的針孔相機拍攝,把日常生活中的人和事物作為創作素材,將攝影影像的本質呈現出來。

在這個影像泛濫的年代,我們的眼睛每天不由自主地,被那些精心安排,甚至是充滿「味精」的影像轟炸,難以安寧。看到以《見》為題的作品,感覺就像遇到清流,因為終於回歸到攝影的源頭,重新發掘影像最初的單純與原始。

與其說這次展示的是攝影作品,對於我來說,它們更具抽象的概念。作者放棄了人們習以為常的表達方式,沒有使用光學鏡片去矯正影像畫面,更沒有經濾鏡調整影像的反差,只是純粹任由人的視覺,簡單評估構圖和光的入射。結果,物體透過光線入射,有了層次的深淺變化和錯落,然後呈現出最原始和樸實的影像。

跳出刻意營造效果的樊籬,這些布局自然的作品給我們帶來了不少驚喜。過度曝光、影像重疊或虛浮、顏色偏差等效果,在普遍的攝影常識中是難以接受的元素;但是,在《見》系列的作品中卻成為了詩意似的存在,不著痕跡地引領我們重新體驗:顏色、線條、光其實本應就是如此簡單和不造作。

在為《見》策展的起初,我還是受困於對針孔影像的不熟悉和不瞭解,再者,也不知道究竟誰會對攝影師自己經歷的那些平凡的日與夜有興趣;但在過程中,我確切感受到施援程心靈上的跨越。她勇敢地放下了積累多年技巧和觀察經驗,以實驗性的手法擷取生命中的瞬間,坦誠地邀請我們進入她的內心,以她心中的光,讓我們感知生命本來應該有的樣子。

See from Within

Cora Si Wun Cheng has devoted herself in photography for many years. As far as I know, she has always worked with professional photographic equipment for her productions. Meanwhile, she also loves to use manual film cameras for particular works. The rough texture of tiny particles on the film always fascinates her. In order to show the essence of photographic image, Cora would take the people she meet and the things she do in her daily life as a theme, and connect them to the world and see them in fresh eyes through pinhole camera.

In this smartphone era, everyone is becoming a photographer and each day we can find ourselves feeling overwhelmed by the images of every move that is too carefully calculated and the overused post-production effects. Yet, when you look at Cora’s latest works ‘See’, you would find a contrast, a feeling of purity, simplicity, and cleanliness, as well as a reminder of the very notion of photography.

In my opinions, this exhibition compels you to look beyond the photographic works and think more of its abstract concepts from within. Cora refuses to rely on the visual language most people use in common – neither using optical lenses to revise the image nor adjusting the contrast of image through filters. Her work – as a result of the composition with instinct, the reflection of light, and the dynamic layers of colours – just simply projects how human eyes perceive the world with most original and rustic images.

Jumping out of the box and getting rid of predesigned and post-production effects, Cora’s work shows a quality of naturalness that captivates us all. In the mainstream view of photography, overexposure, overlapping shape, blurriness, color deviation and other defects are unacceptable. Whereas those graphic defects transcend themselves and become a poetic pulse in the ‘See’. Intriguingly, her work leads us to re-experience what colours, lines and light are about in photography.

Prior to curating this exhibition, I was a bit puzzled as I was neither familiar with pinhole image nor certain who would find it interesting to see what Cora had gone through in her journey of photography. However, having said that, I do observe that Cora has taken a brave leap of faith – she stops replying her long-acquired skills and previous experience, but apply experimental techniques to capture the best moments of her life. Cora’s sincere invitation to her inner world offers us a news perspective of what life could have been.
