[_frame・On Photography]

In a world ruled by photographic images, all borders (“framing”) seem arbitrary. Anything can be separated, can be made discontinuous, from anything else: all that is necessary is to frame the subject differently. (Conversely, anything can be made adjacent to anything else.)
— Susan Sontag 〈In Plato’s Cave〉


自身與外界事物的接觸往往來自經驗,那是必須依靠實際的體驗而完成的。但攝影提供了一種縮短這種過程的捷徑,它模擬了與外界的接觸,擬真的情感傳遞。攝影切割世界裡的資訊,以一種只有個人可以感受的框架,將訊息包裝起來。

框架是攝影中永遠無法避免的一個界限。對於拍攝者,它限制你的主題。對於觀看者,它強迫你凝視。凝視主題便是攝影裡頭的再現模擬,在當下重現想像時間中的情境。
