tuku alev: 掃描照片 – Scanning Photos

第二位部落的vuvu與我們分享有關tuku alev家族的相片。這位75歲的vuvu從塵封已久的電視櫃下的抽屜裡拿出了相簿,抽屜裡共有10餘本關於家族的相簿。tuku 還因為幾本相簿不見了對我們感到不好意思,說有些相簿是因為女兒出嫁而帶走。

我們花了一整個下午的時間一同翻閱相簿,發現有很多相片都遺失了。幾乎每本相簿都有空白處,大多數的相片都是一些得獎的當下.幫孩子和親戚朋友所拍攝的。因著這些遺失的相片,更凸顯出了我們工作的重要性,我們的工作不僅提供了一個機會來記錄關於部落的過去,也幫助部落的家族建立一個可以保存過去的影像和記憶的功能。

儘管如此,這些留存下來的相片對我們的計劃仍然非常的珍貴。當我們一同瀏覽這些發生在我們生活當中的每張相片時,我們所看到的不僅僅是相片中所呈現的美感,而是一張張隱藏在相片背後的故事。大多數的相片都是在特別的場合所拍攝的像是婚禮和一些部落的聚會,然而有些則是比較具體的項目,像是手工製作的傳統服飾。會選擇拍下這樣的照片是為了記錄傳統服飾的設計和象徵對一個家族代表的重要性和對自己服飾的驕傲,相較我們現代對服飾的消費傾向和想法有著很鮮明的對比。

The second vuvu in the village to share with us their family photos was tuku alev. From a dusty draw under the television this 75 year old village elder produced more than 10 photo albums of family photographs. Tuku even apologised for absence of several albums of older pictures, which had been taken by her daughter who now lives in a nearby town.

The absence of photos was a recurring theme throughout the afternoon as together we sifted through the albums. In many of the collections there were empty spaces where prized photos had been taken as children and relatives left the village. These absences highlighted the importance of our current work as not only being a chance to document the past of the village but also to create electronic copies of family photographs to help to preserve the images and memories.

The remaining albums and photographs were none-the-less a priceless source for this project. Reflecting upon the photos that were scanned it occurred to us that not only the aesthetic beauty of the photos was important but the reasons behind each individual photo. Many were capturing important events such as weddings or village gatherings, however some were of specific items. One picture which stood out was a picture of handmade clothes. The choice to take this photograph represents the pride and importance placed upon handmade clothing encompassing family designs and emblems, a sharp contrast with modern consumption which sees clothes bought and disposed of with little thought.
