首页纪实摄影The Shipping Forecast 航运预测 :Mark Power

神秘的英国广播电台如何激发了一系列致力于想象的风景和英国岛屿地位的浪漫概念。

航运预测是英国的一个机构。该节目每天在BBC广播4台播出4次,将西欧水域分成31个海域,包括英国,从多佛到冰岛东南部,再到德国湾。除了它对海员们的实用价值和仍然至关重要的用途(实际上,它还意味着对那些在海上航行的人来说生死攸关)之外,它还被数百万人收听,他们收听它只是为了日复一日地听到轻柔、有节奏的声音。诗情画意的、简洁的一串串文字,让人联想起遥远而抽象的地方。冷淡的淋浴。偶尔下雨。好变得温和。主要是公平的。听到令人难以忘怀的天气预报带来的损失,有一种特别的安慰;知道有比我们强大得多的力量在我们的岛屿海岸之外活动。

自马克•鲍尔(Mark Power)启动他的开创性项目《航运预测》(The Shipping Forecast)以来,已经过去了近30年。回想起他最初想要做这个项目的冲动,他说,虽然预测,或者至少是我们的版本,用的是我们能理解的词,但每句话的实际意义仍然难以捉摸,除非你的生活当然依赖于它。我寻找的图片是一些视觉上的隐喻,用来表达一些难以理解的、完全无法自我解释的词语,通常是因为我会有意省略上下文信息。另外,广播的诗意和曼妙的表达方式是毫不掩饰的浪漫和美丽,所以我也尝试着制作美丽的画面。

“航运预测”的地位是“外面”的预兆,几乎是安全和保护的护身符,而Power的照片 - 黑白,神秘和沉思 - 提供了浪漫和威胁的互补二分法; 当暴风云融合在他拍摄的人之上时,在奇思妙想和不祥的预感之间摇摆。 人们是这个项目的主要焦点。在一堆支离破碎的瞬间,人物聚集在一起,在画面中漫步,仿佛在梦游。他的摄影作品的背景往往是海岸线、地平线和带有集体和个人怀旧色彩的海滩,这个项目也像是一部社会戏剧的编年史。每张照片的标题都是拍摄当天0600小时的天气预报。

“人们常说,收听航运预报的最佳地点,特别是午夜广播,是在一张舒适的床上,窗外有风吹雨打,外面还有雨。 有一种非常浪漫的东西,想象那些在海上安全和温暖的人, 当然,我们这些住在岛上的人认为大海是理所当然的,我发现不可能想象它。 然而,其他国家使用相同的预测,尽管使用不同的语言。也许Meteo Marine在法国也有同样的文化意义,但不知何故我对此表示怀疑。“这是那些关于英国及其岛屿地位的浪漫想法,我们要去探索。他说:“我只对拍摄像我这样的人感兴趣——如果你喜欢的话,也可以称他们为‘旱鸭子’——而不是英勇的水手或渔民。”“这个项目是关于我们这些人的,通过预测,我们数以百万计的人体验到了一种强化的‘英国性’。”

他花了4年时间完成了航运预测,并前往了31个地区。他说:“我是那种摄影师,往往通过简单的动作就能知道自己在做什么。”如果我真的想过我将如何到达这么多遥远的地方,我可能一开始就不会开始。但我从来就不擅长物流。当时他靠很少的钱生活,似乎不太可能到达更远的地方。然而,在这个项目进行了三年之后,他获得了卢森堡的欧洲摄影奖,他的命运发生了变化。讽刺的是,从一个没有海岸线的内陆国家获奖,因此也就没有航运预测,但他没有忘记这一点。他说,对他们来说,从概念上讲,这项工作没有任何意义。尽管如此,这个项目的价值是显而易见的,他赢得的2.5万美元让他完成了这个项目,为他的书添加了一些东西,并制作了一个有着复杂音响装置的展览。

鲍尔本人对航运预测的看法多年来已经发生了变化,当被问及他现在是否会做出不同的预测时,他说,这是不可避免的,但我不能确切地说如何改变。从那时起,我的作品不断发展;现在更安静,更有反射性。所有这些动作都是一位年轻摄影师的作品。最近,他一直在重新评估这项工作,希望有一天能做出一个新的版本。有一些我当时拍的照片,我很惊讶我没有把它们放进书里,而还有一些照片,我希望我能把它们删掉。2017年,Radio 4庆祝了预测150周年纪念日,并且有一切都是 建议它比以往更受欢迎。 同样,Power的图像也始终具有文化意义,深受人们的喜爱,远远超出了他所谓的“摄影犹太人”。 他说,这就是他仍然非常自豪的事情。
