人像攝影向來是一個很有趣的題目,當中涉及人與人之間的關係,怎樣看/被看。在歷史的脈絡下,我們又可通過人像攝影審視某一群人在某個時空下的生活痕跡、文化、自我價值、身份建構等等。特別在相機與智能手機普及之下、攝影突然成為普羅大眾生活的重要部份,我們每天都在製造大量影像,當中更掀起「自拍」風潮。

然而在鏡頭對準自己,再輕按快門的當下,其實我們對自身了解有幾多?憑藉這幅自拍照,究竟我們要向別人展示一個怎樣的自己?假如公開收集100個香港人的自拍照時,我們又會從中看到什麼?

《100香港人自攝像》活動,就是在這樣的一堆問號下誕生。

從網絡上招募廣大香港市民、藝術家、攝影師及不同層面的人士,拍攝一張最能代表自己的Self-Portrait,藉此讓大家進行有趣的攝影交流之餘,大眾更可透過照片重新觀照這一代香港人。而最後獲選取出的100幀作品,在香港舉行展覽之餘,亦被結集成這本屬於香港人的攝影集。

In August 2014, the project called for submission through social media for the self-portrait that represented themselves the most from participants that came from all walks of life including general public, artists and professional photographers. This project aimed at creating an interesting platform for exchanging ideas and experiences about photography, as well as engaging the public to reflect on the thinking about this generation of Hongkongese through the images collected. In June 2015, the 100 pieces of self-portraits selected from the submissions has been presented in an exhibition and complied into this photo book. A photo book that belongs to every Hongkongese.
