博薩特在中國 | BOSSHARD IN CHINA

香港大學(港大)美術博物館將呈獻《博薩特在中國:記錄一九三零年代的社會變遷》展覽。展覽呈獻一系列瑞士攝影記者瓦特爾‧博薩特所拍攝的黑白照片和紀錄片。在 1933 年至 1939 年間,博薩特旅居並走訪中國,成為最早記錄這關鍵十年的記者之一。 從北京到西部的青海湖、從遭受轟炸的漢口到草原上的蒙古牧民,博薩特穿越無數的山水風光、經歷各樣的社會狀況。故是次展覽分為不同主題區域,以洞悉這位攝影師的思緒。除了拍攝日常生活外,他更採訪到舉足輕重的政治人物,包括身在延安的毛澤東、蔣介石和蔣介石夫人宋美齡。博薩特的紀實攝影和紀錄片既非殖民主義,亦不含政治動機。在日軍侵華時,他雖與中國人民一同生活,卻沒有偏袒任何一方,只是讓其靜態又鼓舞人心的照片來捕捉周遭的景象。

The University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG) of the University of Hong Kong (HKU) will present Bosshard in China: Documenting Social Change in the 1930s. Bosshard in China offers a comprehensive sweep of black and white photographs and documentary films produced by Swiss photo-journalist Walter Bosshard. Living and traveling extensively in China from 1933 to 1939, Bosshard traversed myriad landscapes and social conditions, from Beijing to Lake Qinghai in western China; from the bombing of Hankou to Mongolian shepherds on the steppe. Apart from filming daily life, Bosshard also photographed and interviewed key political figures, including Mao Zedong in Yan’an, Chiang Kai-shek and Soong Mei-ling, Madame Chiang Kai-shek. Bosshard’s documentary photography and film are neither colonialist nor otherwise politically motivated. Though he lived alongside the Chinese people during the Japanese invasion, he did not take sides but rather let his images—both still and moving—capture the scenes unfolding around him.
