This book concludes Gu Zheng’s street photography experience. He founded ‘Bei He Meng’, an avant-garde photography group in 1980, and travelled to Japan for cultural exchange in 2006. He is also an well-known photography critic world-wide, who is experienced in writing on photography theories and criticisms.

Street photographers are like ‘idle men’. They consciously observe everyday life that everyone else takes for granted, and wait for the unexpected moment to shoot. This is the first time Gu publishes his thoughts on street photography in Taiwan. In addition to describing the essence of street photography, the book also points out its close linkage and indivisibility with urban development. Street photographers constantly observe changes of the cityscape, from a gray centralized city to a free and colorful one. Along with the increasing number of skyscrapers, street photography also takes a higher angle. Through comparing characters of Shanghai, Kyoto and New York, Gu gives the taste of cities through street photography.


本書是顧錚自身街頭攝影經驗的集大成。他在1980年代創立了「北河盟」攝影團體,風格前衛,又曾於2006年赴日交流,同時身為國際著名攝影評論家,至今編著過多本攝影理論和評論專著。

街頭攝影家就像「遊手好閒」的人,他帶著意識觀察我們習以為常的日常生活片斷,卻又等待意料之外的快門機會。這是顧錚首次在台灣出版集結多年的街頭攝影創作和個人攝影心法。除了闡述街頭攝影的精髓,本書亦指出街頭攝影和城市發展緊密相連的不可分割性。街頭攝影不斷觀察著社會面貌的變化,從集權社會城市一片灰色,到自由社會城市的五顏六色;街頭攝影隨著城市愈來愈多的摩天大樓而採取仰角取景。顧錚也透過作品比較了上海、京都和紐約社會的不同特質,以街頭攝影嗅出城市的味道。
