張的相片
Photos of Cheung
Sliver Gelatin Print, 50.8X61mm, 2012

「張的相片」系列中,我把Facebook朋友「tag」我的相片放曬至銀鹽相紙上。「Tag」是 Facebook 其中一個主要功能,容許用戶在相片上標示某人的存在。作為 Facebook 用戶之一,我的朋友也經常在不同的相片上「tag」我,其他朋友便能從中知道我曾到過哪裡和幹過甚麼。比起我自己所呈現的"張偉樂",從這些相片中更能認識一個立體和全面的「張偉樂」。

另一方面,我正在思考傳統和新媒介的關係。他們有些相同的特徵,也有相反的。例如傳統媒介複製的數量有限,而作者也傾向自己拍下影像;而新媒介卻能夠容易及大量地複製,並且附有大量的現成圖片。我把手提電話中的被「tag」相片放大至銀鹽相紙,嘗試呈現"張偉樂"是誰,成為某程度上的「自拍照」。原本銀鹽相紙上的銀鹽是圓圓的,現在卻盛載著方形的圖素,而原本是彩色的數碼相片變成了黑白負像。傳統和新媒介在這裡互相交疊及轉移。

In the series of "Photos of Cheung", I enlarged the photo that my friends tagged me on Facebook on silver gelatin prints. "Tag" is one of the main functions of Facebook which allows users to tag someone in their photos. Being one of the Facebook users, my friends always tag me when they upload photos. Other facebook friends can know where I have been and what I have done with whom through those photos easily. The photos present "Cheung Wai-lok" in a more comprehensive and multi-dimensional way, more than the one I present by myself.

On the other hand, I am thinking about the relationship of traditional and new media. I find them having identical but also opposite characters. It seems that traditional media has limited copies, and most of the time we have to capture the images by ourselves, while new media can be reproduced easily, and loads of ready-made images are provided. I tried to present "Cheung Wai-Lok" by enlarging those photos on traditional black and white photo paper with my mobile phone, it becomes a kind of self-portrait. Silver gelatin prints, which is formed with circle silver particles now contains image formed by squared pixels, while the digital colour photo has now become B/W negatives. This exhibition enables the intersection and inter-transfer of the forms of traditional and new media.
