展览前言:

“献给那些让我看到隐形事物的隐形人”——埃德加·阿尔瓦雷斯

当哥伦比亚摄影师埃德加·阿尔瓦雷斯搬到洛杉矶时,他为一个奇怪的现象感到困惑。走在一个人人开车的城市里,他看到了许多人由于深陷自己的生活中而没注意到的事情:街上到处都是无家可归的男人和女人。

他当然不是第一个注意到无家可归者的摄影师,但想要拍摄那些看起来远离社会的人可能有些难度。卑鄙的人可能只是鼓励观众去怜悯,而非落实行动。他们不进行改变。

然而,埃德加·阿尔瓦雷斯并不仅仅是一名摄影师,他还制作黏土动画电影。黏土动画电影是简单的黏土人物的动画。它涉及一个叫做“停止运动”的过程,其中电影的画面像静止照片一样。在每张照片之间,粘土模型略微移动然后再拍摄。粘土以每秒25帧的速度播放人物就动了起来。

埃德加·阿尔瓦雷斯将粘土技术发展到了新高度。他为项目带来的挑战和为无家可归者的拍摄带来的创新,深深触动了观众,同时也避免了卑鄙的陷阱pitfall of abject spectacle)。他对作为纪实摄影师初次观察到的场景进行了二次创作, 将基于真正无家可归者创作的粘土人物放进了他遇见这些人的城市景观中。这些作品用虚幻的图像来揭露深层次的事实,就像古老的神话一样。而这些事实是“隐形的”。

 

Project Introduction:

‘Dedicated to the Invisibles who opened my eyes to what is now visible’ 

Edgar Alvarez 

When the Colombian photographer, Edgar Alvarez, moved to Los Angeles he was stuck by a strange phenomenon. Walking around a city where everyone drives a car, he saw what many failed to notice because they remain so wrapped up in their own lives: that homeless men and women were everywhere on the streets. 

He is not, of course, the first photographer to notice the homeless, but there can be a problem with simply photographing people who seem so far removed from the rest of society. All too often images of the abject, while they may encourage a moment of pity in the viewer, fail to encourage that moment to extend into action. They do not change things. 

However, Edgar Alvarez is not just a photographer, he makes claymation films. Claymation is, quite simply, the animation of clay figures. It involves a process called ‘stop motion’ in which the frames of a film are made like still photographs. Between each photograph, the clay model is moved slightly and then another shot is taken. When played at 25 frames per second, the clay figure appears to move. 

Edgar Alvarez has developed the skills of claymation to a high degree. It was these skills he brought to the project and to the challenge of creating images of homelessness that touched the viewer while avoiding the pitfall of abject spectacle. He recreated scenes that he had originally observed as a documentary photographer, setting clay figures based on real homeless people into the cityscapes in which he had encountered those individuals. Like the myths of old, these images use a fiction to tell a deeper truth. The truth of what it means to be invisible.
