展览前言:

《动荡的美国》这本书中的照片由著名摄影记者让·皮埃尔·拉丰拍摄,照片强有力地揭发和审视了美国梦。近三十年来,拉丰感受了美国的宽容,这正是美国式自由的体现。这位摄影师充分利用了世界最有力的民主所赋予他的权利,记录了这个国家的方方面面——从国内危机和不堪入目的社会不公到发自内心的抗议和团结。他游遍了美国的五十个州,充分记录了美国风貌,捕捉了美国最动荡的时刻。从纽约州辛辛监狱的电椅到女性果冻摔跤,从沃特金斯·格伦摇滚音乐节到华盛顿的肯特州枪击抗议,拉丰一直走在展现历史事件的前沿。拉丰并不把摄影当成工作,而是跟随自我意志,带着镜头捕捉故事,时而慈悲,时而充满人道主义,时而无所畏惧。这些画面共同描绘了二十一世纪美国混乱而痛苦的诞生过程,黑人总统、同性恋婚姻和女性管理者都已成为常态。拉丰通过他的镜头向当权者讲述事实,正因如此,《摄影师天堂---动荡的美国》才让我们意识到言论自由的巨大力量。

The photographs that make up this first book by renowned photojournalist Jean-Pierre Laffont serve as a powerful and provocative examination of the American dream. For nearly three decades, Laffont travelled the breadth of the United States, a true embodiment of American freedom. Documenting the country in all of its facets - from national crises and unsightly social injustices to heartfelt protest and solidarity, the photographer took full advantage of the access granted to him by the world's greatest democracy. He travelled all fifty of the United States to document a broad swath of the country's fabric, capturing America through some of its most turbulent eras. From the electric chair at Sing Sing to Women's Jello Wrestling, the Watkins Glen rock festival to the Kent State shooting protest in Washington DC, Laffont was front and centre to history as it unfolded. Never working on assignment, Laffont chased stories of his own volition with a lens that was at once compassionate, humanistic, and unflinching. Taken together, these pages tell the story of the chaotic, often painful, birth of twenty-first-century America - a place where a black president, gay marriage, and women executives have become the new norm. Photographer's Paradise reminds us of the power of the freedom of speech, as Laffont speaks truth to power through his camera lens.
