Those Moments I Regret About Not Pressing the Shutter (WIP)

There must be a lot of moments that a photographer regrets about not taking a photo. about recapturing those moments. These moments are like ghosts, following the photographer’s life with regret. This project is about recapturing those moments. By scratching words which are associated with the memories of these moments on a slide film, it intents to overcome regressions. Here, the process of photographing has been reversed. Instead of looking out into the world through a camera lens, we look back into the photographer’s mind and eye and focus on where the photographs come from in their barest and most primitive form. Despite the internal world of the photographer, the project is also an exploration in the ontology of photography.


每一位攝影者也總會後悔沒有拍下一些相片。這件作品是關於那些沒被拍下,而且一直纏繞著攝影師的時刻。透過刮走投影片上的藥膜,把後悔沒捕捉的內容刻在底片上,一張相片重新再構成。這些相片只有文字,沒有圖像,但卻直接地呈現了攝影者最希望得到的影像,甚至揭示了他的內心世界。
