《南聊》海馬迴 光畫館

【屬於這個世代的影像紀錄】- 海馬迴 光畫館
地址:台南市中西區成功路83號2樓
受訪人:李旭彬 Hsu-Pin Lee
台南人。

出生在神農街的李旭彬,小時候看著阿公在大菜市裡賣魚丸。成長過程中,經歷了大菜市的沒落、中國城的繁榮,一直到海安路的拆遷,大學才離家的他,回想那時候的台南,即使有發展都一直保有安靜的性格。大學念土木的他,念書以外的時間幾乎都出沒在社運場合,畢業後雖然選擇了「穩定的工作」,仍時常在出版社和NGO組織幫忙,一直到結識攝影啟蒙老師潘小俠,那是2000年的台灣,幾乎沒有正規的攝影教育環境,對於多數人來說,攝影所代表的意涵不過就是拍出漂亮的照片,李旭彬因此決定出國學攝影,遠赴紐約、舊金山和佛羅倫斯。

目前的海馬迴除了展覽和舉辦各式活動外,並有不定期開立的攝影課程,讓不同程度的攝影者互相學習、交流切磋。課程主要分為重視引導、強調影像書寫的創作課程及數位和傳統暗房的技術實作課程。不同的影像生產狀態,紀錄承載了不同的影像美學。一直有在開授攝影課程的李旭彬,這幾年在學生身上看到教育的狀態一直在改變,從學生的提問開始,都讓他覺得下個世代或許真有改變的機會。

談到台南的觀光發展,李旭彬認為,重要的是居民如何維持自己的樣子,如果存在的原因只是景觀,這便成為危機,如果單就提升硬體的部分,對城市而言只有傷害。如何找到城市的特性、定義自身的價值,或許可以從日常生活中對於無形價值的定義重新認知、尊重專業、並且正視自己的每項消費選擇。對他而言美好的不僅是1920年代的台南,而應是文風薈萃,既紳士又前衛的故鄉。

府城散步路線推薦:大觀音亭→開基玉皇宮→連德堂煎餅,幸運的話會在附近遇見南管樂團振聲社的團員
平常吃飯好去處:福泰飯桌、阿魯香腸熟肉、聚千福日式關東煮
台南替代空間推薦:齁空間、絕對空間、草埕文化藝術工作

Hsu-Pin Lee, founder of Fotoaura Institute of Photography was born in Sengnong Street. His grandfather was selling hand-made fish ball in market, playing around the tiny, historical street are his childhood memory. During the time, he had experienced the markets faded, how prosperous China Town was and the destroyed of Haian Rd. Recalled from his memory, Tainan is a city with numerous developments while still keeps quiet personality. Majored in engineering in university, he spent most of his free time in social movement events, though he decided to choose a steady work after graduation, during the time he still helped in publisher and some NGO organization. It was in 2000 he met his first photographer teacher, Hsiao Hsia Pan, There weren’t Taiwan regular photographer lessons in Taiwan so Hsu-Pin decided to go abroad studying, and he went to New York, San Francisco and Florence.

Fotoaura Institute of Photography not only holds exhibitions and events, they also have photography lessons for any background or level. Classes being divided two categories, one emphasizes image creation, the other one provides both film and digital darkroom and mainly focuses on skills. Hsu-Pin has taught photography for many years, he observed the generation differences through his students by questions they question each time, made him think there is real possibility for next generation to make some change.

Speaks of Tainan’s tourism development, Hsu-Pin thinks what really matters is how local people keep their lifestyle and personality. If the only reason for people come visit a place is for the spots, over-developed tourism will therefore harm the city. To find the specialty and to identify owns value, to be aware of invisible value in daily life, to be responsible for every choice and purchases, the best way to describe his hometown will be both gentle and modern.
