Digital images

2019

The use of light to capture something to result in an image is the definition of photography.

In this project, the process is to first photograph light in different spaces in Hong Kong, and then to print out each of the images, which are then photographed and printed.

This print-and-shoot process is again repeated for several rounds.

At the end of this manual, low-tech process, the final images are different from the original ones, without the use of any software, app, and/or filter to manipulate images.

The originals are images of light in my bedroom, my neighborhood, a subway (MTR) train, a typical Hong Kong office, and in the Sunbeam Theatre in North Point opened in 1972. The abundant light in Hong Kong hits our eyeballs, but we might not be aware of it and how we relate to it.

Through this process of photographing light from the most personal space to the most shared public spaces, I try to be aware of my relationship with light and the essence of photography.

No matter where an image of light was taken, light is what remains after this manually repeated process of printing and shooting.

 

數碼影像,呎吋不定, 2019

攝影就是以光來留下影像;而當以最簡單的方法(沒有用軟件與apps)將原本關於光的照片轉化,最後留下的亦只有光。

​原來的照片攝於自已的房間、身處的社區、公共交通工具、辦工室及北角新光戲院。
