《馆子》,一本收录十七位中国年轻摄影师作品的摄影书。在这个洪水猛兽的时代里, 这些摄影师不算浮躁,还在拧把地使用着传统相机,在冲取胶片的路上盘算余下的钞票够去哪儿走走,今后拍些什么,该怎么拍,相机是他们与这个世界较量的最好方式。面对中国新摄影这个庞杂冗大的词汇,谁也无法代表这个时代的全部精神,他们也会象 其他人一样,年华老去,不再适合“新”和“年轻”这样的华丽辞藻,但此时此刻的他们鲜嫩多汁,凶猛极端或温柔似水,作品里早已有了倔强的光芒和沉静的呼 吸。这一代人的成长经历,注定了他们的细腻敏感,青春被消费在了一个精神廉价的时代,他们面对的世界更辽阔了,却也更听不见回声。因此在这百幅影像作品 里,我们可以看到一个个生命个体对自我存在的早慧的质疑,面对生活既充满隔阂,也深深沉溺。

Light Room is a photography book realeased by Goooodie.com, includes works by 17 young Chinese photographers. In our treacherous and grotesque age, these are the ones who have not been carried away. They still stick to traditional flim cameras, and already come up with new plans for the next destination and next shoot with their last penny, even on the way to develop film rolls. As a matter of fact, cameras are their arms in the wrestling with the reality. None is able to fully represent the rising neo-photography in China, for that the youngsters will eventually fade away just like the rest, and lose their halo of being “fresh” or “young”. However, at this moment, traits which they boast, being tender, aggressive, or simply mild, are reflected in their works through different approaches, calm or rebellious. The upbringing and life experience of this generation have early declared their sensitivity deep down. In a broadened world, their voices hardly echo, and their youth is consumed. Therefore, via the collection, not only a premature doubt of self-awareness is subtly expressed, but also their dilemma of being isolate from and addict to life at the same time.
