2001年到2004年间,在纽约哈德逊河谷地带和加利福尼亚州北部的岩石海岸,摄影师Daniel Gordon学会了飞翔,继而促成了Flying Picture系列。相机被架设在三脚架上,Gordon跑到提前设定好的区域,并将自己发射到空中,而躲在相机的助手则负责在Gordon降落地球之 前,抓住某个绝佳的时机,按下快门。Gordon在短暂的片刻见证了人类终极梦想——飞翔的幸福感,虽然还没缓过神来,他就呱呱落地。这个计划源于对摄影 真实与否的探讨,数字技术的的泛滥正一步步的改变这个世界和在人类历史上扮演着真理见证者的摄影。可是现在,一切想象都似乎可以轻而易举的实现。这些看上 去似乎是依靠后期制作的照片,实则是一种难得的返璞归真。

摄影师Daniel Gordon 1980年出生于美国波士顿,现居纽约布鲁克林,感兴趣的朋友可以通过Amazon在线购买Daniel Gordon的摄影集《Flying Picture》。

Between 2001 and 2004, on the snowy fields in New York’s Hudson Valley and the rocky coasts of the Bay Area in Northern California, photographer Daniel Gordon learned to fly. Using a camera mounted on a tripod, Gordon frames his picture. He then runs out onto the landscape and launches himself into the air, while an assistant snaps the shutter. Such a journey requires great humility as well as hubris, and a will to achieve the impossible if only for a moment. The project began at a time when digital technology was changing the role that truth has historically played in the media of film and photography. The ease with which one could now alter an image with Photoshop created a new sense of paranoia concerning  the veracity of photographs. Flying Pictures unbelievable, unaltered images reveal that there never was just one truth in photography. Book available for puchase here…
