Digital images

Most of the time we are not aware of light’s existence unless there’s none when we  desperately need it. 

 

Photography requires the use of light to result in an image—and this is also the definition  of photography. 

 

This project is to focus on light itself and the fact that it is the first thing that starts a process and is last thing that remains. 

 

The creation process was to first photograph light in different spaces in Hong Kong (my room, a train, a neighborhood, and a theatre), and then to print out the images, which were then photographed and printed. This print-and-shoot process was again repeated for several rounds.

 

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

 

No matter where and how an image (in this case, images of light) is taken, light exists at  the beginning and 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。

重復的拍攝與打印過程審視科技在攝影中的角色、影像處理及攝影本身。而無論照片是如何拍下來,原初須有光,到最後留低的都只有光。
