Description

From Eden Lai:

My photography is a continuing process. It’s about collisions between the unexpected and obscure. These images were not meant to document the people, objects or sceneries that happened in the present, but to capture the images that had passed. My photographs collect the resonance of my inner self, containing a mix of memories and curiosity in a daily dose. To turn that resonance into a pure significant image I needed to record frequently. During this process, the amount of captured images increases. This introduces many thoughts, doubts, and insights for me from time to time. I question what is photography? How should I interpret photography? I searched for the answers by continuously shooting and then realized that photography is not going to provide the answer. I lived within the obscure capturing the unexpected that occurs in my life. It’s an ongoing conversation between me and my daily life.

「我的攝影,是ㄧ連串偶然與曖昧不清相遇的過程」

這些畫面並不是採用,城市裡每個人,物,景的現在進行式為觀點,而是採用我曾經走過的概念來當作拍攝觀點。照片都藏有我內心的共鳴,包含記憶,好奇,日常,不斷的搜集並將共鳴轉化為影像,然而也因拍攝數量增加,時常對攝影產生許多疑問,好比說「何謂攝影?」「我該如何解讀攝影?」曾經我透過持續的拍攝行為來尋求解答,卻逐漸意識到攝影在我內心不像是為自己與大眾提供解答,它只是生命中ㄧ連串對話的過程,我就處在這曖昧不清的關係之中,進而捕捉下生活中出現的每個偶然。
