沙龍攝影

 

沙龍是甚麼?眾說紛芸。在今天,會被普遍理解為一些影會活動,有時拍花拍鳥,多數卻認為是十數人圍著美女拍照。有懂一點藝術史的人,會說是源自法文Salon,意指法國從前一種品流高尚的賞畫會,他們會選一個房間,把名畫掛滿牆上,然後一同品畫。如果這是沙龍的起點,我們探討沙龍如何由一高尚的活動演變成今天「龍友」「打雀」「打女」等負面形容,當中的演化跟大眾理解差異不無趣味。然而,沙龍的意義並不止於一種港式偏見,相反,它其實與香港的攝影發展及美學息息相關。

SALON Photography

 

What is “Salon”? Different people would have a different definition for it. Today in Hong Kong, this term is mostly referred to activities in some photographic societies, including shooting flowers and birds, and even widely thought as shooting activities of beautiful girls with a group of ten or more photographers. People who know about the art history, would reference it back to the French “Salon”, which was a high-class exhibition of artworks. People would choose a room and hang up artworks all over the wall for appreciation. If this is the origin of the term “Salon”, it would be interesting for us to explore the evolution and the misinterpretation of “Salon” from a high-class activity back then to what it stands for in Hong Kong today with its negative connotations of “Lung Yau” (Salon photographers/fanatics), “Da Jeuk” and “Da Nui” (shooting bird and shooting beautiful girls like a hunter). However, the point of talking about Salon is not only about such a stereotyping of the Hong Kong-style photography. On the contrary, it is meaningful because it actually deeply relates to the development of photography and a photographic aesthetic in Hong Kong.
