Under densely built urban context where space between towers is limited, visual expressions of architecture compose matrix of information. Any form of visual discontinuation bumps out from the “concrete jungle”. Whether it’s a building under demolition, renovation, or vacant lot waiting to be developed, bamboo scaffolding plays a key role in shaping the cityscape. Because of its flexibility and efficiency in erecting and dismantling, the temporal nature of bamboo scaffolding reflects the urban pace in parallel. With pure geometric form and homogeneous colour, such fleeting landscape dilutes the complexity of Hong Kong’s visual representation. The presence of subject is addressed through its absence. Similarly, the absence of vanishing neon signs in Hong Kong painted a pessimistic backdrop towards the unstoppable trend of change. As an evolving project, this book intends to take on the role of capturing the city’s transformation with bamboo scaffolding as representative. Curtains up, curtains down, the dancing fabrics captivates the unspeakable minds drifting underneath the vague layers.


纪翔,建筑设计师、自由摄影师,现居香港。创作多基于高密度都市体验,于日夜转换中截取对城市想象的片段,游走于纪实影像和试验性表达之间。摄影作品于香港、纽约等地展出。虽然都以城市为主角,《23:59》以黑夜里光影对调后的都市空间进行实验,《竹城》作为试验性同名短片的引子,则是略带类型学的纪实影像系列,亦是一个待扩展和可编辑的作品。香港的城市密度及混杂多样性使得城市景观难以辨读。竹棚作为一种高效灵活的建造方式与复杂的建筑外表并置时,单一的颜色和体块暂时消解部分视觉信息,在”钢筋森林“里短暂开辟出一片空地。无论是建造、维护、还是拆卸,转瞬即逝的竹棚深度参与香港城市变化。从城市尺度到竹棚材料本身,不同的聚焦点记录着“树林”里飘忽不定的“瀑布“。有时飘舞的纱网下掩映着对于这座城市的未知和不确定性的迷惘。幕起幕落,接下来是什么呢?


Previous photobook about night city fantasy 23:59 ESCAPE (2021) will also be available to everyone again!

23:59 ESCAPE 亦将与大家再度见面!


The book compiles of contemplation moments at night in the densely-built urban environment. Intense colors and reflections in the city compose a symphony projected to the city when it's dark. Wandering through streets and compositing the scene became a way of escape from the city life while being part of it. Most of the works are shot after working hours when the city life begins to settle down. Tranquility could be rediscovered even when you are not in the nature, where shimmering lights from the fainted dark background sets up the stage for wanderlust.
