One World, Two Sense

Hong Yu

The most effective way to pry into photographer’s inner world is theorising their works. However, it is difficult to see first-hand since in photographer’s eyes in the moment when they click the shutter, the fancy and incredible scene of their inner world. This project is trying to present that world to audience. You can see the same scene have different feeling between photographers themselves and the audience. i try to mix these sense together as combination in one photo and express to people. 

 

This origin of this idea is quite dramatic, when i see the photos of Helmut Newton and his introduction, his photos and behaviour are actually shocked me. Before i saw his work, fashion photography in my mind should be elegant and delicate. But he and his works bring eroticism and visual impact to fashion photography. In some extend, he is undisputed great, but i still feel a bit unacceptable to him. Then i was thinking "it is possible that the photographer like Helmut Newton also have some different feeling about their works, or maybe there is a huge different between first sense and final version of their photos".  Then following the further research and development of this idea (e.g: photos of Lee Friedlander, Diane Arbus, and Ed van der Elsken), it become "try mix photographer's first-hand sense in their mind when they hold a camera and watch this world through the viewfinder together withaudience's view angle".
