毋庸置疑,摄影已经成为当下社会人们最重要的书写方式之一。拥有相机、会拍照,仿佛是一件与生俱来的事情。

 

也正因为如此,拍摄成了最为重要的民主方式。人人都能参与,人人都会拍摄,很多人的日常生活都是以摄影的方式进行。记录、表达、甚至通讯与交流,摄影在日常生活中扮演起越来越重要的作用。

 

世界是个巨大的艺术仓库,如果细看,似乎一切都可以纪录,人类活动的一切痕迹都值得留下。在这里展现的,是21位摄影师的作品,他们以相机为媒介,对周围世界进行视觉勘探。他们正在以不同的方式,重新审视自己身边的人或事,重新认识并理解这些内容并使之成为拍摄对象。

 

在全球化的大环境下,一方面,旧的传统和景观正在慢慢消失,新的文化和建筑正在出现。摄影师开始关注这种变化并以此作为纪录或创作内容;另一方面,摄影师开始发现身边容易被人忽略的事物,赋予了它们新的内涵,以此来表达自己对世界的理解。无论是记录新事物还是对旧事物重新进行发现,都成了这些摄影师们的职责所在。

 

摄影成了我们观看世界的重要方式。因为这些审视已经不同于一般的观看,我们称之为《新视线》。

 

 

摄影师陆焕东、余敏山、汪雪涯开始关注当代社会呈现出来的新建筑,他们冷静陈列,以类型学的方式进行拍摄。无论是小区大门、公共卫生间还是各种新出现的欧式建筑,都能折射出当下社会人们的喜好和梦想。摄影在这里扮演了博物馆考古的作用,为未来研究当代社会的公共建筑文化提供了视觉档案。

 

摄影师李红、张仁明,以摄影的方式介入私人家庭生活。他们深入私人生活空间,一方面展现普通百姓的生活景观,另一方面展现中国家庭的精神信仰和生活梦想。在这里,普通百姓的生存现状、文化、空间、信仰、欲望、时尚、矛盾和冲突等信息都得以展现。

 

摄影师吴力、李钧,把镜头对准了当下的新景观。人们对自然强行改造后留下新景观,能让我们去解读当代社会快速发展、新旧交替过程中所展现出来的矛盾与冲突,也在提醒我们思考人类自身的行为是否得当。

 

摄影师高艳通过论述和日常生活有关的琐事儿并对这些物件进行拍摄和解码,努力去发现隐藏在里面的种种亲密,以此探寻上一代人的生活史和精神空间。李蓉、殷鸣镝则分别以日常生活中的餐饮和服饰为创作对象,开始对日常生活进行审视和发掘,使观者进行阅读并产生想象。毛巧媛和李尊先则在一些生活场景进行重新发现,以女性主义视角去理解和诠释老百姓的生活艺术和生活美学。她们把相机当成了凝视、观察、记录和理解外部世界的途径和工具,拍下了当代人们日常生活中留下来的痕迹和生活景观。

 

在全球化的趋势下,一部分摄影师开始关注身边人的变化。因为担心时光流逝,这些摄影师试图拍下一些人群的肖像,为未来人们留下视觉档案。燕苍娜、史发翠、王家璜、赵立群、崔建玲,纷纷重新返回到自己当年生活的场地或人群,以影像为媒介,再次审视这些看似平凡实则不易的人们,开展一次大发现之旅。拍下这些影像,既表达对特定人群的同情,也有质疑和反思。张伦、许小英、辛刚、徐建东等人则以影像调查的方式,为老人、喜欢COSPLAY的年轻人、狗贩等几类人群建立生活档案,展示出他们对部分人群命运的关注和社会责任感。

 

摄影是捕捉客观世界的重要方式,也是摄影师作为个体的一种表达。对摄影师而言,其重要职责就是试图去看见一切事物,去发现并揭露这些被隐蔽的现实。每幅照片都是世界的一个片段,这些新视线,既向我们展现世界、揭露问题,又向我们表达观点、引发思考。

 

这是对人类当下发展的记录与展现,更是摄影师对人类命运的审视与发问。

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.
