有人說,當我們拍照,按下快門的瞬間,時間就已成為過去。

過去的我拍照累積了許多照片,它們被收在底層,從未見光,它們等在那邊一定有其原因,這次我決定使用它們。我開始隨身攜帶這些照片、隨機地排列與沒有目的地重新複製翻拍,並透過修圖工具去進行後製,藉著修掉照片彼此之間的邊界,試圖消弭影像中所乘載的私人記憶點與線性時間軸。

出現在一張照片中的事物,的確是觀者眼前確實的存在,但同時照片裡的內容物也是一件再也不復返、眼前的缺席物;我想要打破這樣的狀態:透過數位修圖工具的再製加工,影像從過去的束縛中脫出,並成了抽象的斷片,它們成為一種等價的離子,從背景影像「溶出」,彷彿新生的細胞組織,開始滲透活動;這樣的重生方式挾帶著意外,並且是超越時間和物質性的存在,是連作者本身都無法干預,偶然產生的東西。

如果說,影像是過往至今因為時間積累、彼此牽繫而成的線狀物,透過這個方法,我的作品就可以不再是線,而是點狀物一般的存在。雖然它們還是原有的影像素材,但攝影師不再有權利去決定如何呈現它們,照片碎裂成微小而自由的粒子,自行運作,其中的私人回憶藉此釋放、不復存在,而成為只是一幅原始的影像。

在〈Raw〉這個系列裡,我嘗試藉此去讓影像復活,從影像創作中獲得「當下」。

關於攝影集《Planet》

當我還是小孩的時候,我曾經想過地球以外的世界是什麼模樣,但當時的我無法得到任何答案。我還記得有時候我會有某種奇妙的感受,異樣的畫面會衝進我的腦袋而我無法以文字解釋。

人類可以感覺、辨認和想像,但我們並不總是能夠透過想像而得到一個確切的事物輪廓,不過我覺得找出答案並不是最重要的。於此同時,我發現感受的重要性,這個難以名狀的「東西」,是人類擁有的基本能力。

在這本書中,我定義了一個虛構的星球,其中影像來自於許多地方,我嘗試去捕捉發生在這個星球上的循環與流動,以及其時間的流逝,將那份難以名狀的「東西」,重新呈現在紙上。

此攝影集於台灣印刷完成, 2017年5月獨立出版。

關於藝術家

藤井智也 Tomoya Fujii

出生於1984年,目前居住於台北和日本。

藤井智也畢業於大阪藝術大學,主修文學,畢業後因身邊攝影師友人而開始對攝影產生興趣並開始大量拍照,他喜歡事物的背後的故事性,如文學和電影。對他來說,當今攝影的普遍性與易接近性正是讓攝影成為獨特創作媒材的原因,透過影像創作,他嘗試發現和拓展此一媒介的可能性。

他的作品曾經入選「東京前線攝影獎新視野#03(TOKYO FRONTLINE PHOTO AWARD NEW VISIONS #03 G/P)」,2016年於日本攝影畫廊G/P Shinonome展出;自製攝影書《Planet》入選2016年荷蘭阿姆斯特丹Unseen攝影節(Unseen Photo Fair Dummy Award)。

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Someone said that when we take a photograph, the moment immediately became the past.

I have some prints taken in the past. They had been left at home and never been used. There must be a reason why I didn’t use them. A while ago I decided to put them randomly near my place and retake photos of them. Then I attempted to eliminate the visible boundary between the existing prints and the background environment information by using digital tools. To do so it released the time sequence of my private memories that were recorded on the old prints.

A thing in a photograph is the thing that ever exists in front of the eyes and at the same time the absence of the substance, which can not be seen anymore. I wanted to get the images out of the “past”. These fragments in the processed images are beginning to from like new particles, dissolving equivalently from the background visual. The images once belonged to me before. However, they were set free after I processed them through tools like Photoshop. They started to move like freshly born cells. The images were reborn as accidental products and emerged beyond time and the physical content, which the author can not intervene either.

If the image itself connects the past and the present as a cumulatively lineal existence, I want to replace the circumstance with small particles and make it become all sort of “points”. Photographers usually choose what to show according to their personal wills. In this process, selection is effected randomly by the images themselves. I want the images to be relieved from my memories and to be recognized as just an image.

In the series, I explore how to “resuscitate” the image and try to acquire the “current” through my creation.

About the book
PLANET (2016)

When I was a child, I often wondered what was happening outside of the earth. However, I couldn’t find any answer at all. I still remember sometimes I would have some weird feelings. Strange images would come to my mind, which I couldn’t express in words.

People perceive, recognize and imagine. Although we can not always imagine things with certainty, I don’t think it is important to find answers. On the other hand, I noticed that this ability to feel must be “something” very fundamental existing in human souls.

In this project, I’ve defined a “fictional planet” where all the images were taken from multiple locations. I tried to catch the flow of circulation and time passing of this planet, in order to reproduce “something” on the paper.
