庄学本

 

庄学本(1909-1984),中国影像人类学的先驱,人文摄影大师。

庄学本出生于上海,19岁开始学习摄影。19341942年间,他在四川、云南、甘肃、青海四省少数民族地区进行了近十年的考察,拍摄了万余张照片,写了近百万字的调查报告、游记以及日记。1941年在重庆、成都、雅安三城举办“西康影展”,20万人前去参观。他的摄影考察从一开始就专注于那些“白地”(地图没有之地),他的目光从社会组织、生产方式、贸易到自然生态、文化、宗教、习俗等,几乎囊括了整个社会形态。他在《十年西行记》中这样写道:与这些边地民族“相处即久,就知其快乐有趣,古风依然,反觉其精神高洁。有自诋同胞为野番正者,为大缪”。他的照片展示了那个年代少数民族的精神面貌,为中国少数民族史留下了一份可信度高的视觉档案与调查报告。

在庄学本所拍摄的影像中,最具艺术魅力和价值的是肖像摄影。即使把庄学本拍摄的肖像放在世界摄影史的范围之中,它也是非常有魅力的一部分。庄学本肖像的魅力不在于图像的语言的独特,而在于拍摄者的态度,在于拍摄者与拍摄对象之间的关系。在于一个拍摄者对于人性的独特的理解以及一种平等的态度。在庄学本的大多数肖像作品里,无论是贵族还是贫民,都一样宁静。你几乎读不到他们之间由于阶层与生活差别在精神气质上的差异。作为人,他们有同样的自尊,同样的自在。这些肖像形成了一个独特的图像群落,他们所表达的精神气质,共同形成了那个时代边地民族的人格与情态。那些面孔有一种在我们的生活氛围中从未有过的宁静,优美,以及在这一切中蕴含的人的尊严。

Zhuang Xueben

 

Zhuang Xueben (1909-1984) is a remarkable documentary photographer in photographic anthropology in China.

Zhuang Xueben was born in Shanghai and started his photography career in his nineteenth. During his decade-long stay in the border area from 1934 to 1942, he shot an enormous number of photographs related to ethnic Tibetans in the 'Tibetan area' including Sichuan, Yunnan, Gangsu and Qinghai. He has been exploring the blank area in China (the area which has not been found on the map). He kept a report of various ethnic groups in border area and made a precious photographic documentation of social events and religious practice of those groups. Zhuang Xueben has never been to Tibet. His works of those living in the outskirt area leave us a memorable impression.

Among his works, the portraitures of Tibetans are breathtaking. Self-disappearance in those photographs is reflected by a tranquil gaze from the photographer. A deep humanity is revealed by those photographic traces.

In 2009 renowned Curator Li Mei held retrospective exhibition for Mr. Zhuang Xueben. Collected works of Zhuang Xueben was published after the exhibition.

In May 2010 Reviewing the Masterworks: a Selection of Ethnic Tibetan Related Photographic Artworks by Master Photographers Lan Zhigui ans Zhuang Xueben was curated by Huang Jianpeng. Huang Jianpeng galllery owns twenty-six pieces of Zhuang Xueben's photographs from this exhibiton.




Huang Jianpeng Gallery collected lots of original works of the important photographers in Tibet photography history. It is one of the most professional institutions that collect and study Tibet images.
