二〇二〇香港國際攝影節展覽選集

 
支持

二〇二〇的攝影節,充滿危機應變與學習。時疫底下,海外策展單位未能抵港,令本屆全由二十八個本地創作單位主力,在這「例外狀態」底下,一起深思如何調適應變,如何尋覓生存空間。我們自覺,有需要製作一部書,以為這無法名狀的一年留下點滴面目,為未來世代留下一個時間囊。書集選錄了今年攝影節具代表性的二十個展覽,包括十個新一代影像創作育成計劃學員結業之作,及十個透過公開徵集而來的衛星展。借用這隔離時段的空隙,我們與每一位深度訪談,希望透過文本,帶讀者進入創作者的世界,搭建真誠交流:有分享社會考察,個人內心深處剖白,腥風血雨抗爭記錄,亦有冷靜明晰的概念實驗,呈現了攝影的多樣性面相。當中跨越世代之分,不約而同從近年社運風暴出發,以攝影為歷史見證、為身份追尋、為自由抵抗。

書集由旅居布拉格之香港平面設計師劉逖雲設計,攝影節團隊編製,硬皮線裝合共約三百五十頁,十二月出版,限量印製二百五十本。現凡捐款攝影節港幣五百元或以上者可獲贈乙本。

香港國際攝影節於二〇一〇年由十九位香港攝影工作者聯手創辦,期許成為香港與世界各地攝影文化的溝通平台,憑藉不同攝影活動,展示多元攝影文化,創造釋放思考的空間,邀請大眾感受攝影與生活之關係,同時致力栽培影像創作新人,令香港的創作環境更美好。

成立至今,攝影節一直以非牟利慈善機構模式營運*,迄今主要依賴政府和商業贊助。然而成熟的藝團,當需一定比例之民間贊助。二〇二〇攝影節迎來首個十年誌,面對不太明朗的前景,我們自覺需作更長遠綢繆,更多能量,才能持續於這條路上邁進。

今年,在各方支持下,我們成功獲批大帽山上的川龍前貫文學校舊址短期租約,以及基本翻新工程資助。我們即將翻新這六十年歷史的舊校舍,渾涵川龍獨特人文地境,將當代攝影的創作、討論、學習和想像延伸至鄉郊,預計明年年底,我們就可開放這坐擁美麗景觀的空間,實踐共學共創,聯繫社群,提昇生活。

為秉持攝影節的獨立自主,專注社會、非營利的精神,以及守持表達及知識的自由傳達,活動的開放自由參加,誠邀您成為我們的支持者。您所捐出的一分一毫,將獲「藝術發展配對資助計劃」配對,大大增加您的支持力度。

*香港國際攝影節由香港攝影文化協會主辦,協會為根據《稅務條例》獲確認豁免缴稅資格之慈善團體。

HKIPF 2020 Exhibition Compilation

This year’s Festival has been one of many challenges and lessons. As Covid-19 grounded our overseas partners in their respective countries, the Festival continued with Satellite Exhibitions of 28 local image makers: together, we reflected upon our values and ways of living under such ‘state of exception’. We felt compelled to produce a publication, a time capsule, to remind our future selves of such an indescribable year. As such, this compilation gathers 20 representative projects from the 2020 exhibitions, including the final outcomes of the ten participants of the Photographer Incubator mentorship programme, and ten projects selected from the Satellite Exhibitions Open Call. During this quarantine downtime, we spoke with the image makers in depth in hope of bringing readers into their creative process and developing a genuine connection.

The compilation highlights the many different facets of photography, including social investigations, intimate confessions, records of brutal protest scenes and conceptual explorations. Despite the image makers being of different generations, many of their works speak of the political turmoil in recent years; collectively, they are witnessing history, questing for identity and defending freedom through photography.

The compilation is designed by Prague-based Hong Kong graphic designer Dio Lau; edited by the Festival project team; hardback bound with a total of around 350 pages; printed in December 2020 with a limited edition of 250.

Hong Kong International Photo Festival was founded in 2010 by 19 local photographers to platform exchanges between local and international visual practitioners, showcasing diverse voices through a wide range of public programmes.

We are dedicated to nurturing new talents and enriching our local creative environment, at the same time maintaining a free space for people to contemplate and experience the relationship between image making and the everyday. 

Since its establishment, the Festival has been operating as a non-profit charitable organisation*, and has mainly relied on government and commercial sponsorship. However as our operation continues to grow, support from individuals will become crucial, especially in the coming years. As we step into our tenth anniversary, looking into the challenges ahead, it becomes apparent to us that we will need all the strength and resources we can gather to further our plans and make greater progress in the days to come. 

Earlier this year we successfully obtained a short-term lease for the site of the former Koon Man School at Chuen Lung Village in Tai Mo Shan, as well as subsidy for its refurbishment in order to repurpose the 60-year-old site. To be opened to the public at the end of 2021, it will be a space for learning, exchanges, and experimentations on contemporary photography, not least a communal space to strengthen relationships, generate conversations and vitality from within the scenic village.  

We, as an independent non-profit, believe in the freedom of expression and the sharing of knowledge. Support our work and help facilitate the growth of the arts by making a donation to the Hong Kong International Photo Festival. Your contribution will go towards our operation, future programmes and keeping our events accessible. Donations of all sizes received will be used for matching under the Art Development Matching Grants Scheme. 

*The Hong Kong International Photo Festival is organised by the Hong Kong Photographic Culture Association, which is a tax-exempt charity under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance.
