Through Her Lens: 從醫生變身攝影師,看紮根在倫敦的她如何拍出多元美學

分開一本本時裝雜誌,內裡全都是時尚硬照,看著這些照片,你或許只會把目光放在衣服的設計、模特兒的姿態和背景的擺設。照片中透露出的情感和主題,你又能否直接感受得到?話說回來,又不是每一個攝影師都能在構圖和用色等設計之中,滲透個人訊息給予大眾。看過這位女攝影師的作品,或者會令你改觀。

父母分別是牙買加和尼日利亞人,從小紮根在倫敦的時裝攝影師Nadine Ijewere對於自己的作品有一番過人的追求。從昔日的醫生到現在的攝影師,從以往的基督教徒到現在的伊斯蘭教信仰,就可見Nadine是個不斷求變的人,為的就是找尋屬於自己的「根」。

因為本身是混血兒,加上在第三個國家成長,Nadine一直希望找到一種自己的文化,這可以讓她找到自己的個人身份。就是這種心態,讓Nadine更希望透過攝影發掘和表達,令她的作品無形中多了一種情感的力量。

I’m interested in how other people identify and celebrate who they are and where they’re from.

– Nadine Ijewere

會對攝影有興趣,Nadine大概要歸功於《Vogue》內的時裝硬照,加上自己媽媽就是造型師,令她對時裝本身非常有興趣,才讓她希望在這方面鑽研。看著Nadine的作品,你會感受到一種樸實而親切的創作力,經過多重情感營造出來,並透過鏡頭把不同的訊息和文化傳遞到觀眾的眼中。

I want my work to have meaning and context behind it. I try to create a space where different ethnicities can exist together as well, which I feel is really lacking in the fashion industry. Of course I can shoot a glossy image, but for me there’s no meaning to it. It’s just a pretty image to look at and that’s not what I want to use my talents for.

Nadine自言自己的作品都是注重多元文化的,希望展現不同種類的美態。她的「Same/Difference」系列找來了多對不同身份的姊妹,讓人看看同一對父母也可以孕育出不一樣的人。

I want to document sisters and showcase that they are all beautiful — with all their similarities and differences.

– Nadine Ijewere

另一個系列The Misrepresentation of Representation,就是探討不同文化下美麗的定義和改變。作品中用了不懂種類的花卉象徵不同的美學,然後讓觀眾感受箇中的關係。看過Nadine的作品,你又是否像上了一課文化課般,對美學有了不一樣的感受?
