生命在死亡前的旅途 - Life Before Death: Journeys

我哭了。从未想过看摄影展会流眼泪,很不可思议。这就是 Deanna Ng 在《亚洲摄影之月》里的摄影展,Life Before Death: Journeys, "生命在死亡前的旅途"

Deanna在 LienFoundation 的委托下为临终者拍摄了一系列的 "Legacy Album" 或遗产相册。这相册把临终者过去和现在的照片,回忆,和他们在死亡前的生活记录下来, 永久的献给他们的家人。为了拍摄这个别的相册,Deanna 用了几个月的时间和临终者和他们的家人相处。她到他们的家中或医院病榻前, 了解和融入他们的生活,把临终者和他家人的关系,生活,挣扎都一一的记录下来。看着临终者的离去,这任务也对Deanna造成了某程度的影响。有些临终者还来不及拍摄,已离开人间.....

在影展读Deanna的前言时,在我内心最深处的那道伤痕已再次被触痛, 眼泪已装满了眼眶。她所讲的不就是我和家人所经历过的吗?我妈妈去年在癌症的摧残下离开了人世。再看下去的时候,眼泪一触即发。癌症病人内心的害怕与恐惧,家人无私的爱与奉献,历历在目。 在眼泪不听使唤的情况下,流着流着,感动的看完了整个展览。

在这展览里,Deanna 呈献了三个家庭的故事。

这几句简单的话,你对你关心的人说了吗?有话乘早说,不要等到没机会时才来后悔莫及。

制成后的Legacy Albums或遗产相册。

官方资讯:
In September 2008, Deanna Ng was commissioned by the Lien Foundation to celebrate the lives and legacies of the terminally ill for it's Life Before dearth campaign Legacy Albums initiatives. The Legacy Albums were produced for individuals who had been nominated by loved ones to receive a specially created album that put together past and present photographs, memories, anecdotes and their journey of life before death. Deanna has since documented three subjects and their families for this ongoing photo project : The late Mr Ng Wai Mun, a loving hubby and devoted father, was a true fighter till the end; Madam Mariam and her family who seem to face impossible situations in their lives, and Mr Phua Hock Seng, whose dance of life was cut short by the Lou Gehrig's disease. Her exhibition is the result pf her many months of engaging the subjects, capturing their family relationships and struggles, and the ups and down of a terminal illness. What one would imagined being pictures of gloom and fear, Deanna's photos instead reveal beauty, strength and love that rise above all odds. If death is a final destination in life, the families have chosen to celebrate their journey instead.

有很多话,我知道很难一时三刻让你明白。也只有你自己能够去面对。只希望你别把心门越来越紧闭。身为朋友的我们,除了能默默打气,在旁默默支持,借你耳朵....也只有你自己,真正知道自己的痛,语言上对痛的形容,旁人也只能大概猜测,但没办法真正感同身受。也只有你自己,能打开你的心,给与你自己爱,让别人进入你的内心爱你。

我们常用相机来捕捉美丽的一刻纪录某些事件
但这一次的Legacy Album纪录,
更是别具意义。
我想Deanna Ng在拍摄的这段期间
心理肯定不好过 佩服他的勇气。
感慨万千~
