網上獨立攝影書店The Salt Yard將主辦由香港資深紀實攝影師黃勤帶出版的新攝影集《Vajrayāna》的新書發佈會,該書為他繼2011年出版廣受好評的攝影集《廣場的日子》後的最新作品,除新書發佈外黃勤帶亦會為大家分享這廿多年來入藏的經歷和創作歷程,歡迎公眾參與。

 

黃勤帶於一九九一年首次從以險要著稱的川藏公路進入西藏,體驗藏民獨有的生活文化,從此與藏地結下不解之緣,足跡更遍至印度及尼泊爾境內的喜瑪拉雅山藏區及藏民流散之地。這二十多年來無數次的旅程,除了是他對宗教的追求,也是一種對攝影圖像中靈性表達的探索。黃勤帶對黑白銀鹽攝影有著一份無言的執著,他鏡頭下高原的日照,泥土的質感,藏民黝黑的膚色,都活然於紙上。《Vajrayāna》攝影集見證了攝影師廿多年來的心路歷程,展示他獨有的世界觀,從而體現當中的頓悟和啟發。

The Salt Yard, an Independent online bookstore, will host a ceremony to mark the launch of a new book Vajrayāna by veteran documentary photographer Kan Tai Wong. This new album is Kan Tai’s latest work published after the well-received ’89 Tiananmen. Members of the public are welcomed to join the event in which Kan Tai will share his creative process of his works and experience of traveling in Tibet for more than 20 years.

Travelled to Tibet for the very first time in 1991 through the dangerous Sichuan-Tibet Highway to experience the unique culture of Tibetans, Kan Tai has since developed an indissoluble bond to the area. His footprints reached the territories of India, Nepal and the Himalayas, as well as the whole Tibetan diaspora.

The many journeys over the past two decades epitomized not only Kan Tai's religious pursuit but also his exploration of spiritual expression in images. Obsessed with silver gelatin black and white photography, sunshine on a plateau, texture and breath of soil, dark skins of Tibetans all come to life through his camera. Vajrayāna witnesses the photographer’s spiritual path and showcases his distinctive view of the world that insights and inspirations will be revealed to readers.
