十本有關攝影的「曳」書
My Ten Quirky Picks on Books about Photography

 
「曳」的定義,你我不同;共通之處或許在於「非主流、非經典」。張康生將會由十個不同的角度出發,分享其個人自書中體會到不一樣的攝影可能。討論內容著重拓展視野,希望為同樣喜愛攝影、亦追求獨特個性的「非打咭」影友,在「曳」中求變,發掘專屬個人的光影作品。
 
What is ‘Quirky’? Different people will have different interpretations for it. But what would probably be agreed is the implications of being ‘non-mainstream’ and ‘unorthodox’. In this lecture, Enoch Cheung will speak about ten different possibilities with photography that he discovered through reading ten ‘quirky’ books. He aims to share these with fellow photography lovers who would like to broaden their perspective and to hone their personal touch.

紀實攝影的起點和終點
Shooting Documentary Photography: Where to Start and Where to End

 
一個紀實攝影作品到底因何而起,又如何終結,看似一個無關宏旨的常識問題,但這其實才是決定一個紀實作品成功與否的主要考量標準。課堂中會以一些著名紀實作品為例,分析創作者的手法和獲受認同的原因。
 
How to start a documentary photography project, and how to end it? — These may sound like just good, common sense. But very often they are the deciding factors whether a project is a success or a failure. In this talk, Leon Suen will examine some of the most famous works in the history of documentary photography to elucidate the key success factors behind these great legacies.

照片閱讀室
Photo Reading Room

 
對應於即時網上影像的交流方式,我們嘗試以不合時宜的方法,在滿桌的照片面前閒話攝影。不合時宜是指除了拍攝以外,每人均要整理拍攝意念,寫成作品陳述作為閱讀起點,把攝製多時的照片整合成為作品集,編排影像的序列,選取打印沖曬材料,作專業的展示。所有桌上作品皆可以讓你拿在手中慢慢細看,唯一要求是戴上提供的白手套。如果你能帶同個人攝影集作同場交流,交換,那當然是無任歡迎。
 
The photo reading room starts with writing your shooting ideas, then combining the photos into a collection, arranging the sequences of the images, selecting printing and filming materials and finally presenting the photography works professionally. We will read and see the photos closely with white gloves. You are welcome to bring your own photography books for exchange.
