簡介

Robert Polidori以其充滿情感,隨著時間逝去或人物轉變而變幻無常的室內攝影,對人類棲息地作心理上的探索。他曾於世界各地拍攝,包括哈瓦那曾風光一時的豪宅殘餘、印度果阿殖民地時代建築、貝魯特記載戰爭痕跡的庭院、切爾諾貝爾核事故後的廢墟、中國及迪拜的城市住宅等等。2006年,他受紐約大都會博物館委託,為新奧爾良受颶風卡特里娜襲擊後的情況作攝影紀錄。

Polidori成為藝術攝影師的職業生涯始於80年代初,當時他得到許可拍攝凡爾賽宮的修復過程。此後,他多次回到宮殿拍下更多相片。在每一作品中,他以房間作為隱喻及記憶存載之概念是顯而易見的。他通過長期暴露於自然光線的方法進行室內攝影,作品的色彩豐富誘人,是以座機長時間等待合適的光線,加上仔細沉思座機角度的成果。Polidori採用寬尺寸的片狀菲林,以創作出高質量的數碼攝影圖片。

Robert Polidori於1998年贏得世界新聞獎,並於1999及2000年獲頒阿爾弗雷德·艾森士塔特雜誌攝影獎。曾出版了11本相集,他的作品珍藏於紐約大都會藝術博物館、紐約現代藝術博物館、倫敦的維多利亞及阿爾伯特博物館,及巴黎的國家圖書館。

Why wouldn’t the walls have recorded and layered, one on top of the other, all the emotional vibes of the rooms’ successive occupants and visitors?

I met Robert Polidori through a photograph he had taken of the Versailles restoration. It captivated me. Seeing so many layers of history in one image was astonishing. So was being spurred to imagine Versailles as a real dwelling defined by the remnants of its inhabitants, and all the changes in history they and it had undergone.

Make that two ex-Montrealers. One is Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, the

The other is Robert Polidori, the New Yorker staff photographer born in Montreal

forced half a million people to flee their homes. Le Moyne made plans for a
great city. Polidori gives witness to its demise.
